Aussie RBA statement release had already been priced into this market. No breaking news and rates remain on hold in Australia. Rumours of rate hikes now to come later this year in line with US fiscal unwinding. This would put pressure on Australian households with stagnating wage growth and heavily leveraged mortgages in an arguably over heated housing property market.
OPEC and Russia members are "shoulder to shoulder" on wresting back oil from the US. They will cap production pushing prices higher. How does this impact this currency pair? - Canada's economy is reliant on oil production. That production is generally shale oil I believe. So as conventional oil drives higher. It makes shale oil a more viable resource . Hence this may push the Canadian economy along. generally, as oil rises so to does the Canadian economy. Hence this would support the CAD gaining overt the AUD.
