In March, the interest rate of Australia was reduced to 0.25%. Since then, it was kept steady. The Reserve Bank of Australia informed at that time that there would be no intention to increase the rate until there is full employment, a 2-3% inflation rate, and other indications that the economy is recovering. Since then, although the economy is indeed recovering, the indicators are too far away from warranting the rate change. Hence, we will look at the tone of the RBA press conference to gather details of the outlook for the AUD. If these are positive enough, it may lead to another upswing with AUD/USD.
- If the bank’s tone is hawkish, the AUD will gain value.
- If the bank’s tone is dovish, the AUD will fall.
