AUD/USD Forecast: Approaching The Monthly Low At 0.7621, Bearish In The Near-Term

AUD/USD Current Price: 0.7641

  • The American dollar found additional support in Fed Kaplan’s comments.
  • Australian Commonwealth Bank PMIs are foreseen stable in expansion levels.
  • AUD/USD is approaching the monthly low at 0.7621, bearish in the near-term.

The AUD/USD pair fell to 0.7638, its lowest in over two weeks amid prevalent demand for the greenback in a risk-averse scenario. The poor performance of equities weighed on the pair, although demand for the American was steady throughout the last trading session of the day. Comments from Dallas Dallas Federal Reserve President Robert Kaplan helped the dollar, as he said that he is among the policymakers expecting the central bank could start raising rates as soon as next year.

Australia will publish this Wednesday the preliminary estimates of the March Commonwealth Bank PMIs. The Manufacturing index is foreseen at 56.9, matching the February reading, while the Services PMI is expected at 53.8, slightly better than the previous 53.4.
