AUD/USD has lost ground for a third successive day. In Wednesday’s Asian session, the pair is trading at 0.6743, down 0.14% on the day.
Investors Eye Job, Confidence Data
There are no key Australian events on Wednesday, but the markets are waiting for key employment numbers on Thursday. Employment change is expected at 15.3 thousand in September, lower than August but still a decent reading. The unemployment rate is projected to remain steady at 5.3%.
As well, the NAB releases its quarterly business confidence report. Traders should be prepared for stronger movement from the pair on Thursday.
AUD/USD Technical Analysis
AUD/USD continues to move lower and tested support at 0.6760 on Tuesday. Currently, the pair is slightly below this level. If the downward movement continues, support at 0.6710 will be vulnerable. This line is protecting the round number of 67.00, which last saw action in early October.
USD/CNY is showing limited movement in early Wednesday trade. In the Asian session, the pair is trading at 7.0915, up 0.14% on the day.
USD/CNY Technical Analysis
USD/CNY has reversed directions after the recent rally by the yuan, in which the pair lost close to 1.0%. The pair tested support at 7.0592 on Monday, but this line has since stabilized, with the pair moving higher. Still, this line could be further tested during the week. Below, we find support at the 7.0400 line. On the upside, 7.1100 is relevant and could face pressure if the upward movement continues.
NZD/USD has posted slight losses on Wednesday. In the Asian session, the pair is trading at 0.6285, down 0.14% on the day.
New Zealand CPI Beats Forecast
New Zealand CPI, which is released every quarter, was better than expected in the third quarter. Consumer inflation gained 0.7%, edging above the estimate of 0.6%. NZD/USD has responded to the release with marginal gains.
NZD/USD Technical Analysis
NZD/USD continues to test support at 0.6280, but is having difficulty consolidating below this stubborn line. Below, we find support at 0.6230. On the upside, 0.6357 has remained intact in resistance since mid-September.
