On Wednesday morning the pair AUD/USD has reached local lows, dropping to the level of 0.8923, amid negative Chinese statistics. However, in the afternoon the pair shifted to upward correction. At the opening of today’s Asian session the AUD continued to grow due to support from Australian macro-economic statistics. It became known that number of employees in the country was above the forecast, increasing by 47.3 thousand. Amid these facts AUD/USD had tested resistance level of 0.9075; however the pair failed to consolidate above this level.
Today, investors will wait for the data on retail sales and number of initial applications for unemployment benefits in the USA.
