6 weeks of momentum in the Australian Dollar (AUD) ended Wednesday against the British Pound (GBP) when price clocked 0.5200 (1.9220) the GBP pulling back 2 weeks of declines. The RBA helped to inspire a rebound in the GBP as risk returned to markets, but the cross was unfazed. RBA’s new governor Michele Bullock was careful in her statement not to give away hints of a future rate hike. Solid UK PMI reads, and broad-based selling of the Aussie is the theme into Friday. Breaking below support at 0.5250 (1.9050) we may see further downside in the AUD leading into the close.
