Currency Spotlight: RBA Optimistic View and How USD Reacts

Currency RBA USD

Stay updated on Currency Spotlight: RBA Optimistic View and How USD Reacts and Oil Market Developments for Current Forex Insights.

In the recent US session, the forex market experienced a lack of significant economic news, resulting in a stable performance of major currencies. The Dollar Index (DXY) reached a low of 104.85 but later stabilized around 105.16. Concurrently, spot gold prices hit a low of $1,977.23/oz overnight.

In the upcoming Asia session, all eyes are on the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), set to raise its cash rate by 25 basis points to 4.35%. This expected hike, driven by robust retail sales and inflation, has the potential to bolster the Australian Dollar (AUD) when paired with a hawkish RBA statement. Meanwhile, market participants closely watch Federal Reserve Governor Christopher Waller’s speech at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Conference (3:00 pm GMT) in the US. Any neutral remarks from Waller could adversely affect the Dollar Index (DXY).
