Aussie tacks on as RBA holds

Aussie tacks on as RBA holds

On Tuesday, the Australian dollar held revenues in Asia just a few ticks above 0.80 versus the US currency even as the major bank warned Australia’s currency turned to be a factor in interest rate views.

Assessing the greenback’s value versus a trade-weighted basket of six crucial currencies, the US dollar index gained 0.06% sticking to 92.73. 

The currency pair AUD/USD rallied 0.36% showing an outcome of 0.8032. Meanwhile, the currency pair USD/JPY demonstrated 110.20, descending 0.05%.

The Reserve Bank of Australia didn’t change its interest rates, leaving them intact at a record minimum 1.5% just as expected on Tuesday, hinting at the potential impact of a strengthening Australian dollar.

Overnight, the evergreen buck languished at more than 14-month minimums versus a basket of global currencies because investors kept betting against the American currency after a mixed pair of economic reports put pressure on market sentiment.
