Meanwhile, the pair has consolidated its major gains performed after American economy had released mixed macroeconomic data leaving US bulls unimpressed. Moreover, the pair was supported lately by the latest developments surrounding Deutsche bank as payment amount of a fine hasn’t reached estimated volume, thereby lending support to the common currency. However, lack of investors today will be compensated by upcoming data flow that expectedly will shake the market. The pack of PMI’s will be released during this Monday including EU Manufacturing PMI with bunch of local Eurozone PMI’s and ISM Manufacturing PMI across the pond.

Overview:                                                        Today Aussie remains slightly negative against its American counterpart however, keeping its gains after massive rebound seen last Friday supported by prevailing risk appetite across the market. Today expectedly the pair will remain in its narrow range as traders prefer to keep stay-and-watch mood ahead of tomorrow’s Australian Interest Rate Decision. Furthermore, most of major Asian markets will remain closed during this day, taking away part of volatility. However, today’s US data coupled with broader risk sentiment will assist traders to catch some pips during this Monday.
