AUDUSD Retreats as Bears Control the Game

AUDUSD trades 0.21% lower at 0.6753, after three consecutive positive days  rebounding from 10-year lows. On the data front, the Australia AiG Performance of Construction Index came in at 42.6  from previous 44.6 to in September. AUDUSD hit 10-year lows after the RBA cut interest rates by 25 basis points to 0.75%. 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 might cut to ‘support sustainable growth in the economy, full employment and the achievement of the inflation target over time’.
