AUD/USD Current Price: 0.7730

  • Gold prices and global indexes hold on to monthly gains.
  • The Reserve Bank of Australia will publish the Minutes of its latest meeting on Tuesday.
  • AUD/USD is technically bullish but still needs to overcome the 0.7770 resistance level.

The AUD/USD pair edge modestly lower on Friday but finished the week with substantial gains in the 0.7730 price zone. The pair reached a weekly high of 0.7760 amid the broad greenback’s weakness but lost traction in the last trading session of the week as investors took some profits out of the table. Nevertheless, substantial gains in gold prices and global indexes kept the pair afloat and poised to extend its advance.  

The Australian macroeconomic calendar has had nothing to offer at the end of the week and will remain empty until next Tuesday when the Reserve Bank of Australia will publish the Minutes of its latest meeting.
