Market Update – 29th May 2018 – Commodity Prices Remain Subdued, AUD/EUR To Test 0.6500

Again there is no economic data out today or this evening which in conjunction with bank holidays in the U.S and U.K overnight means very little movement in currency markets. AUD/USD is continuing to tread water in the 0.7500’s, while AUD/EUR is the big mover up again and looking to break through 0.6500 potentially in the next few days. Commodity prices remain subdued and this is dragging on the Aussie dollar which has for the better part of a month traded in a tight range between 0.7410 and 0.7600 vs. the Greenback.

So other than that there is really not too much more to discuss. Have a great day.
