  • An improved market’s mood put the greenback under selling pressure.

  • Australian Q4 inflation is foreseen stable and well below RBA’s target.

  • AUD/USD is back bullish in the near-term, could rally beyond 07815.

The AUD/USD pair resumed its advance this Tuesday, reaching 0.7753 and trading nearby as the day comes to an end. The pair surged during European trading hours amid an improvement in the market’s mood, which played against the greenback. The pair retained gains despite the poor performance of Wall Street, as the US three major indexes struggled to post intraday gains.

Australia returns from a holiday with the release of Q4 inflation data. The Consumer Price Index is foreseen unchanged at 0.7% YoY while the RBA Trimmed Mean CPI is also expected unchanged from Q4 2020 at 1.2%.
