AUD/USD all eyes on tomorrow’s Capex

The most relevant event for the AUD this week will be the Private Capital Expenditure for the third quarter, although consensus amongst traders would point to a soft reading, adding to the selling pressure. Today’s Construction Work Done in Australia expanded 2.7% in Q3, largely surpassing the median at 0.5% and the previous quarter 0.1% gain. According to Greg Gibbs, “The Trading performance of the AUD in recent sessions has been poor reflecting the increasing uncertainty in China and the rhetoric by the RBA focussing on the expected decline in resources investment over the coming several years and desire for a weaker AUD to support investment growth in the non-resources sector”.

AUD/USD levels to watch

As of writing the pair is down 0.05% at 0.9125 with the immediate support at 0.9090 (lower channel support) ahead of 0.9088 (low Nov.26) and then 0.9038 (low Sep.4). On the flip side, a break above 0.9204 (high Nov.26) would expose 0.9249 (high Nov.22) and finally 0.9355 (high Nov.21).
