AUD/USD stuck in the mud near 0.7200

  • The Aussie sees continuing bearish pressure as bidders see little reason to step in this week.
  • US NFP is coming to bear on markets, and investors are focusing on the major event.

AUD/USD is shuffling its feet near 0.7225 after Thursday saw the currency from down under continue a recent bearish push, closing in the red for a fourth consecutive trading day, although buyers did appear at the latter end of Thursday's trading, picking the pair up from October's new low at 0.7191, but the Aussie remains constrained, seeing play towards the south side of the 50-day moving average.

Australia's Trade Balance missed expectations on Thursday, clocking in a $600 million decline to $2.3 billion, coming in far underneath the median market forecast of 3.2 million, but the Pacific-Asia market is currently buckling down in preparation for the US NFP data drop due in the upcoming American Friday trading window.
