Aussie dollar stabilizes, waiting for signals.
“Risk-on mood dragged on US dollar, propping up demand for Australian dollar”
Aussie dollar hovers near two-weeks high, extending its consolidation phase after greenback bulls comes to a stall. Market sentiment towards the currency was rather positive as Reserve Bank of Australia signalled for a larger interest rate hike in June due to stubbornly high inflation. Traders speculate that more central banks may follow the footsteps of Fed soon. For the time being, investors will wait for speech delivered by Fed Chair Jerome Powell later today for more market signals.
