Canada will release the level of CPI on August 21, at 15:30 MT time.
The RBA meeting is coming
The Australian dollar tested the lowest levels since January's flash crash below 0.68 on the risk aversion yesterday. Is there any hope for the aussie to recover? The answer is yes but at first, we need to wait for the Reserve bank of Australia's meeting today at 7:30 MT time.The central bank has made two rate cuts in June and July. This time, the interest rate is expected to remain steady at a record low of 1%. The inflation data came out in line with the forecasts, that is why the chances of a third rate cut are quite low. We need to pay attention to the tone of the statement and to the hints on the future rate cuts. Dovish comments by the RBA governor Philip Lowe will make the currency weaker. Pay attention to the 0.6745 level, which may be broken in that case. Otherwise, AUD/USD may reverse and reach the 0.6851 level.
