AUDUSD trades 0.34% lower at 0.6681, making fresh 10-year lows as the pair cancels the short-lived rebound after yesterday’s worse-than-expected US ISM Manufacturing data. The pair today resumes the downtrend which started after the RBA cut interest rates by 25 basis points to 0.75%. The dovish stance pressures Aussie to 10-year lows. RBA left the doors open for further cuts in the future as the Australian economy is at “a gentle turning point”. Reserve Bank of Australia may cut further to ‘support sustainable growth in the economy, full employment and the achievement of the inflation target over time’.
