AUD/USD Forex Technical Analysis – Strengthens Over 7605, Weakens Under .7587
The Australian Dollar fell on Friday after the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield rose on Friday after the U.S. March producer price index showed a larger-than-expected increase.
The U.S. March PPI data showed a rise of 1.0%, compared with a projected rise of 0.4% from economists surveyed by Dow Jones. The majority of the increase came from a jump in prices for final demand goods, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
On Friday, the AUD/USD settled at .7619, down 0.0035 or -0.46%.
Reuters also reported on Friday that the Aussie Dollar was pressured by worries about a slowdown in Australia’s coronavirus vaccine rollout after the imposition of age-related restrictions on the use of Astra Zeneca shots.
