AUD/USD rises to 2-week high as break of 0.7130 push bulls toward 0.7145/50 resistance-confluence
Tuesday, 9 April 2019 12:44 WIB | CURRENCIES |DolarDolar ASAUD/USD,AussieDolar

AUD/USD is presently trading near two-week high of 0.7140 before the European markets open on Tuesday. The pair gained traction as upbeat Australian housing finance data joined hands with the overall US Dollar weakness. Traders may now concentrate on any updates concerning the US-China trade talks as the economic calendar is in a thin shape.

While positive commodity prices and sluggish US data helped the Aussie maintain its earlier strength on Monday, traders took advantage of the broad US Dollar weakness during early Tuesday.

Adding to the optimism was better than expected February month housing finance data from Australia. Investment lending for homes grew 2.6% from upwardly revised -2.3% prior whereas home loans beat -2.0% forecast and -2.5% revised earlier with +2.0% gain.

Buyers were also pleased with the pair™s break of 0.7130 horizontal-resistance that has been limiting the upside since the month-start.

Looking forward, traders await details of the US-China trade talks that recently pleased global commodity players with signals to end a bitter tariff was between the world™s two largest economies.

On the economic front, the US February month JOLTS job opening will bear market attention. The employment figure could soften to 7.550 million from 7.581 million registered during the previous month.
