Traders need to watch Australian GDP
The Australian dollar has strongly depreciated in the recent months. The Reserve Bank of Australian doesn’t aim at a soon rate hike. It means that the AUD needs a support from other sources. As positive economic data always supports a currency, better GDP figures will lead to the rise of the AUD.
GDP is the broadest measure of a country’s economic health. Australian economic growth declined to 0.4% in the fourth quarter of 2017 from 0.7% in the previous quarter. It was the weakest growth rate since a contraction in the third quarter of 2016.
