Market Update – 24th May 2016 – Aussie Flat Despite 5% Fall In Iron Ore Prices


Lower iron ore prices and a fall in European equities sees the Aussie dollar down this morning but only very marginally and with very little data out again today we’re likely to see the Aussie continue to tread water.

Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens speaks just after 1.00pm today which could result in some AUD volatility but only if he discusses the recent cash rate cut or the potential for future cuts. Ofcourse this will be closely watched by economists and traders but again hard to see the Aussie budging from current levels.


AUD – RBA Gov Stevens Speaks at 1.05pm

EUR – Zew Economic Sentiment at 7.00pm

GBP – Inflation Hearings at 7.00pm
