AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: RBA Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes and range price movement 

2017-08-15 02:30 GMT | [AUD - Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes]

[AUD - Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes] = It's a detailed record of the RBA Reserve Bank Board's most recent meeting, providing in-depth insights into the economic conditions that influenced their decision on where to set interest rates. 

==========

From rttnews article :

  • "Members of the Reserve Bank of Australia's Monetary Policy Board have noted the continued improvement of global economic conditions, minutes from the bank's August 1 meeting revealed on Tuesday. At the meeting, the central bank decided to leave its key interest rate unchanged at a record low 1.50 percent for the eleventh consecutive meeting."
  • "Taking account of the available information and the need to balance the risks associated with high household debt in a low-inflation environment, the board judged that holding the stance of monetary policy unchanged would be consistent with sustainable growth in the economy and achieving the inflation target over time."

AUD/USD - weekly bullish reversal to be started; 0.8066 is the key (based on the article)

Weekly price is on bear market rally to crossing 200-SMA bullish reversal level to above together with ascending triangle pattern with 0.8066 resistance level for the bullish reversal, otherwise - bearish ranging within the levels near bullish reversal.


  • "The Australian Dollar shot sharply higher, posting the largest gain in five months against its US counterpart following the release of minutes from July’s FOMC meeting. Overall positioning hints that the rising trend established from May/June lows may be starting to resume."
  • "From here, a daily close above the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion at 0.7979 opens the door for a test of the 0.8066-87 area (July 27 high, 38.2% level). Alternatively, a reversal back below the 14.6% Fib at 0.7913 clears the way for another challenge of the 0.7784-0.7821 area (38.2% Fib retracement, trend line)."

AUD/USD - ranging for direction (based on the article)

Intra-day price on H4 chart is located within 100-SMA/200-SMA levels waiting for the direction of the trend to be started.


  • "The Australian Dollar has struggled to build upside momentum against its US counterpart since bouncing from rising trend support set from May/June lows. Prices seemingly completed a bullish Flag continuation pattern but have been unable even to retest the prior swing high, much less to overcome it."
  • "Resistance is at 0.7979, the 23.6% Fibonacci expansion, with break above that on a daily closing basis opening the door to challenge the 0.8066-87 area (July 27 high, 38.2% level). Alternatively, a turn below trend line support, now at 0.7859, exposes the 0.7784-0.7805 zone (38.2% Fib retracement, August 15 low) anew."

Weekly AUD/USD Outlook: 2017, August 27 - September 03 (based on the article)

The Australian dollar stabilized on high ground, consolidating previous gains. What’s next? Australian capital expenditure and Chinese data stand out in a busier week.


  1. Building Approvals: Wednesday, 1:30. A rise of 10.9% in June will probably be followed by a drop now.
  2. Construction Work Done: Wednesday, 1:30. We will now receive the data for Q2.
  3. HIA New Home Sales: Thursday, 1:00. A rise could be seen now.
  4. Chinese official Manufacturing PMI: Thursday, 1:00. A score of 51.4 points was seen in July, within the recent ranges.
  5. Private Capital Expenditure: Thursday, 1:30. A rise of 0.3% was seen in Q1 2017, within early expectations.
  6. Private Sector Credit: Thursday, 1:30. Growth accelerated to 0.6% in June, after slower months beforehand.
  7. AIG Manufacturing Index: Thursday, 23:30. The manufacturing sector continues growing nicely according to the Australian Industry Group, with a score of 56 in July, the highest since April.
  8. Chinese Caixin Manufacturing PMI: Friday, 1:45. The Caixin PMI is already an independent measure of the manufacturing sector of Australia’s No. 1 trading partner and tends to have a significant impact on the Aussie. In July, the figure beat expectations and reached 51.1 points. However, this still reflects slower growth than in past years.
  9. Commodity Prices: Friday, 6:30. A growth rate of 17.1% was seen in July, below 23.7% that was seen beforehand.

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for AUD/USD (based on the article)


AUD/USD - "Investors can also look forward to news of the Australian current account position, job advertisements and service-sector performance, all of which have the potential to move the market. But the overall backdrop for the currency is one of at least relative investor support – even at record lows Aussie yields are attractive – countered by rising RBA watchfulness of the currency level. None of this is likely to change this week so, while AUD/USD may be in for a more volatile ride, the basic backdrop seems set to endure. That’s why I am making a neutral call yet again."
