AUD/USD Approaching Important Resistance

    * The dollar fell versus most major currencies on Thursday following an unexpected decline in December US retail sales. The greenback and US interest rates have been falling since last week’s disappointing employment report. The weak retail sales and NY Fed President William Dudley’s assessment that interest rates may remain low for at least six months and possibly two years decreased bets on Fed interest-rate increases and pressured the greenback. The S&P 500 rose 2.78 to close at 1,148.46 before Intel’s stronger-than-expected earnings announcement. The yen rose, reversing earlier losses from an unexpected decrease in Japanese machinery orders. The euro declined modestly. The European Central Bank held its refinance rate at 1.00% and said interest rates were appropriate and risks were balanced. ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet said the eurozone economic outlook is unclear and Greece will not get a special treatment. Sterling rose for a fifth straight day. The Canadian dollar reached the highest level since October.

    * The AUD/USD rose as Australia’s employment surged more than estimated. While the odds of a US rate hike decreased, the strong Australian labor market is boosting prospects for another RBA interest-rate increase. The AUD/USD is also supported by robust Chinese economic growth and booming commodity markets. After breaking its long uptrend in early-December, the AUD/USD fell but reverse its decline before Christmas. The pair is now approaching mid-October’s high, which is important resistance. If this resistance is broken, the pair’s ascent will continue. There are resistance in the 94 area and support in the 90. We believe the pair will trade in this range for a while.




Financial and Economic News and Comments
