Market Update – 9th June 2016 – Aussie Takes Swipe At 0.7500, Commodities Rally Again

In the absence of any news overnight the Aussie dollar has continued its sensational rally, busting through 0.7450, taking a swipe at 0.7500 but failing to hold above that level which has become synonymous with the fair value many market participants place on AUD/USD. Equities had mixed results overnight but commodities led by oil and gas had the best gains up around 0.5%-2%. The Bloomberg Commodity index finished up nearly 2% which bodes well for local equities today.

Again not much is on the cards in terms of data – so positive momentum will continue to guide the market.
