AUD/USD Wobbles Near 0.7700
The Aussie dollar is trading almost unchanged vs. its American peer on Monday, with AUD/USD currently in a narrow range around the 0.7700 handle.
AUD/USD attention to CPI
The Aussie dollar is coming down from last week’s cycle highs near 0.7840, finding decent support in the 0.7690/0.7700 area for the time being.
Despite today’s softer tone around the greenback, spot remains unable to find further traction against the backdrop of mixed sentiment in the global markets.
Ahead in the week, inflation figures tracked by the CPI for the first quarter are the next relevant event in Oz, whereas New Home Sales are due today in the US calendar.
