Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for Dollar Index, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/CAD, USD/CNH and GOLD (based on the article)
AUD/USD - "Although Fed officials have claimed that
every policy meeting may produce a rate hike, their clear desire not to
trigger market panic suggests that they will not opt to change things
without an opportunity to thoroughly explain in detail. This means that
after this week’s outing, the next opportunity for stimulus withdrawal
comes in December. Between now and then, another opportunity to update
traders will come in November, offering the FOMC a chance to up- or
down-shift the projected rate hike path and limit surprise risk. Keeping
this flexibility will mean that the narrative emerging from the
upcoming announcement will need to be cautious but unmistakably hawkish.
This bodes ill for risk appetite as well as the Aussie’s yield
advantage, threatening to deliver the currency a third consecutive

[AUD - RBA Gov Lowe Speaks] = Opening Statement to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics, in Canberra
From SBS article: RBA governor Philip Lowe says a lower Australian dollar would be helpful
to amplify the positive effects of its falls in recent years
A lower Australian dollar would be helpful in amplifying the
economic benefits of its recent falls, Philip Lowe has said at his first

deficiency in aggregate demand in the global economy," Mr Lowe told a
hearing of the House of Representatives economic committee in Sydney.
"Many of my peers think the same, but of course we can't all have a lower exchange rate," he said.
