Will the AUD retest its recent highs?
The Reserve Bank of Australia will post a rate statement, which contains an update on the interest rate on October 6, at 6:30 MT time.
Instruments to trade: AUD/USD, AUD/NZD, AUD/JPY
The Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to keep the interest rate at 0.25%. However, the current "wait and see" attitude of the RBA may be interrupted soon, according to Westpac. One of the leading analytical agencies has changed its forecasts and now projects a rate cut by 15 basis points during November's meeting. Thus, it is highly recommended to monitor the statement for the potential dovish hints. The combination of a stronger dollar and bearish forecasts have already pulled AUD/USD from its highest level since December 2018. Will we see further falls?
- If the RBA keeps its attitude unchanged, the AUD will strengthen;
- If the RBA is dovish, the AUD will weaken.

However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
