"A slow-motion rise in US yields and in Fed rates is a recipe for money to gravitate towards higher-yielding currencies and in G10, that means the Australian dollar is a favourite pick," explained Kit Juckes, economist at Societe Generale, adding, "We get RBA Minutes overnight but more importantly, a break of AUD/USD 0.7780 would get technical analysts excited about a move to 0.8160."
AUD/USD near term outlook is neutral, according to analysts at Commerzbank. "The market shot up to its current March high at 0.7718 before giving back some of its recent gains. We nonetheless view the current March low at 0.7492 as a near-term base and would allow for gains to the 0.7778 8th November high to be seen once the February high at 0.7740 has been exceeded."
