Market Update – 11th July 2017 – AUD/USD Creeps Higher Led By Iron Ore Prices

European stocks were the best performers overnight gaining around 0.2-0.5% while U.S equities finished more or less flat with the exception of the tech heavy NASDAQ which moved higher to the tune of 0.38%. The Aussie dollar led by higher iron ore prices crept forward by another 0.1%, taking AUD/USD and AUD/GBP past key levels in 0.7600 and 0.5900 respectively.

So far it’s been a pretty quiet week data wise and that looks set to continue today with only NAB Business Confidence and Home Loans numbers due at 11.30am. From a more macro view, there again isn’t much out tonight other than some speeches from various Central Bank members.
