More relevant, China published the NBS Manufacturing PMI, which was up to 50.9 in June, better than the previous 50.6. The Non-Manufacturing PMI recovered from 53.6 to 54.4.

AUD/USD short-term technical outlook

The AUD/USD pair is holding on to its neutral stance in the short-term. The 4-hour chart shows that the pair is trading around flat 20 and 100 SMA, while technical indicators stand within neutral levels. Nevertheless, the bearish potential continues to be limited, with intraday dips attracting buyers. The pair needs to advance beyond 0.6925 to gain some bullish potential and approach to 0.7000 threshold.
