Weekly Market Analysis: Australian dollar climbs amid risk-on trade

currency-newsWeekly Market Analysis: Australian dollar climbs amid risk-on trade
The Australian dollar rose throughout last week’s trade as an improving market mood boosted the risk-sensitive ‘Aussie’.

Rising commodities prices added to the resource-linked currency’s gains.

Below-forecast economic data tempered AUD’s upside, however. Inflation printed slightly lower than expected, while retail sales growth slowed sharply in June.

An ongoing risk-on market mood has helped the ‘Aussie’ continue to climb this week.

Looking ahead, the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) interest rate decision on Tuesday could boost AUD. Markets expect a third consecutive 50-bp rate rise.
