AUD may extend its losses over US data?
“Traders pour into greenback ahead of this week’s key US data.”
Australian dollar remained pressured during Asian trading session as market focus shifts towards the greenback. Earlier, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre commented that they are expecting elevated inflation due to ongoing supply chain issue. Her comment came in line with recent data from St. Louis Fed which suggests extended increase in overall price levels. While Reserve Bank of Australia delivered a huge rate hike as of recent, the news failed to convince buyers to continuously lend their support towards the currency.
