AUD/USD Fundamental Analysis October 26, 2012 Forecast

AUD/USD Fundamental Analysis October 26, 2012 Forecast

Analysis and Recommendation:

The AUD/USD climbed along with most of the commodity currencies after a positive print in China on Wednesday. The HSBC PMI report was better than forecast and higher than previous months, indicating a change for the better in China, but the report was at 49.1 which are still below the 50 number that indicates expansion. The AUD is trading at 1.0362.

Yesterday, new home sales in the US printed above expectations and the Federal Reserve maintained its current policy.

Figures this week showed Australia's consumer price index (CPI), the key measure of inflation, rose 1.4 per cent in the September quarter, above the 1.1 per cent rise economists had expected.
