Market Update – 15th December 2017 – AUD Continues To Gradually Move Higher, Take Advantage If You Can

Stronger than anticipated U.S retail sales didn’t stop the Aussie dollar from hitting fresh one month highs overnight with the AUD now up about 2.5% since Monday vs. the Greenback and similar margins vs. the Euro and Pound. Again, it could be worth taking advantage of the Aussie dollar at current levels given the uncertainty that remains in the market and particularly given it was only last week that we were threatening the low 0.70’s vs. the Greenback.

No economic data is due out today. So rather than waffle on I’ll just say have a nice weekend!
