AUDUSD Inches Lower Amid RBA Monetary Policy

On the upside, the pair is likely to face a hurdle near 0.7637, the intraday high of yesterday ahead of 0.7676, the swing high of the latest major upside rally and then 0.7700, the psychological number. The technical bias will remain bullish as long as the 0.7420 support area is intact.

RBA Monetary Policy

The Reserve Bank of Australia has cut the official cash rate to an unprecedented 1.5 per cent to maintain a downward pressure on the currency and spur sluggish inflation and business investment. As was forecast by most analysts, the board lowered the cash rate by 0.25 of a percentage point from 1.75 per cent on Tuesday.  Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens said in a statement that “the likelihood of lower interest rates exacerbating risks in the housing market has diminished”. The RBA statement said supervisory measures have strengthened lending standards in the housing market.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook, buying the pair on dips still appears to be a good strategy in short to medium term.
