AUD/USD holding 0.7350 on better-than-expected Caixin PMI headline

Monday, 3 December 2018 10:16 WIB



The AUD/USD finds itself trading into the 0.7350 level, with intraday support coming from a better-than-expected Caixin PMI from China, while the 90-day extension on January's tariff action between the US and China is helping to revive broader risk appetite.

China's Monday Caixin PMI reading may have managed to beat expectations, printing at 50.2 versus the forecast 50.0 (last 50.1), the underlying figures reveal a cautionary note: the sub-index for new export orders in November shrank to 47.7, a decline from the previous month's 48.8.

The G20 Leader's Summit over the weekend saw a temporary de-escalation in trade war tensions between the US and China, with President Trump and China's Xi agreeing to hold off on any further tariffs or tariff rate hikes for another 90 days, easing market tensions about January's planned tariff hikes where the US was set to increase tariffs against China to 25%, and the extension will see the two sides returning to the negotiations table.
