AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/CNY – Markets Quiet as Investors Look for Trade Talk Clues

Kenny Fisher

AUD/USD is flat on Monday, continuing the lack of movement seen on Friday. In the European session, the pair is trading at 0.6815, up 0.01% on the day. There are no major Australian indicators on the schedule.

Ahead – RBA Minutes

Investors will be keeping a close eye on the RBA minutes, which will provide details of the RBA policy meeting earlier in November. At that time, the RBA maintained rates at 0.75%. The Australian economy is weak and a dovish message from the minutes could weigh on the Australian currency.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis

After some volatility late last week, AUD/USD has settled down. There is immediate support at 0.6740, and this line could be tested shortly. The next resistance line is at the round number of 0.6900, so the pair does have plenty of room to move upwards.
