The market sentiment improved amid the slowdown in virus cases. Let's have a closer look at the AUD, S&P 500, gold and the GBP.
Is the RBA to hold the rate?
The Reserve Bank of Australia’s release of the interest rate is at 5:30 MT on November 5. There are strong opinions among the analysts that there will be no rate cut announcement on November 5 meeting, so the market expects it to stay at 0.75%. Although the Australian financial authorities previously expressed their will to stimulate the economy and lift the inflation rate through rising wages, it has been outlined that households and savers would suffer more if the rate was lowered. For this reason, no change is expected this time, but let’s keep our eyes open.
- If the RBA is hawkish, the AUD will rise
- If the RBA is dovish, the AUD will fall.
The market has started the week with a mixed sentiment…
The US NFP will be published on August 7 at 15:30 MT time.
The market sentiment is indeed risk-on today. Stocks, riskier currencies and gold are rising amid the waning US dollar.
