AUD/USD

The Australian Dollar is trading sharply lower on Thursday in reaction to a mixed labor market report that raised the chances of another rate cut in July by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

According to the latest government statistics, Australia’s unemployment rate inched up in April, despite a big jump in new hires. The government said the economy added 28,400 jobs in April on a seasonally adjusted basis, well above the consensus estimate of 16.0K. The previous month was revised up to 43.1K. The unemployment rate reached 5.2%, matching the previous month. However, traders were looking for a reading of 5.1%.

At 07:16 GMT, the AUD/USD is trading .6910, down 0.0018 or -0.27%.
