Market Update – 22nd February 2017 – Aussie Trading Sessions Remain Very Subdued

A solid session for European and U.S equities along with commodities, sees AUD/EUR up half a percent and AUD/USD back to yesterday mornings levels. The Aussie had retreated in afternoon trade but thanks to strong demand for global equities the Aussie managed to regain that lost ground.

Other than that it was again extremely quiet and quite dull trading for the Aussie throughout yesterday but I would assume a lack of volatility is probably just the way our clients like it!
