The US producer price index will be published. Growth is projected at 0.4%. If the real value is lower, the USD will receive a negative impulse.
The deterioration of relations between Australia and China often led to pressure on the Australian currency, since China is one of Australia’s key economic partners. Hong Kong’s National Security Act has been condemned from Western countries. The Australian Prime Minister promised Hong Kong citizens a five-year visa, and China promised to respond to these statements.
Meanwhile, the currency pair could not overcome the resistance level of 0.70000. Perhaps the bears will activate and quotes will continue to fall.
The support level of 0.69160 has several times been defending from a downtrend. However, this reference point may be broken due to its “fatigue”.
An interesting situation arose on this asset. After a long trend, quotes again reversed from 114.600. Due to the fact that traders did not show their desire to break this benchmark, the price of the asset is more likely to fall.
