AUD/USD Keeps Losses Despite Big Beat on China Exports
Monday, 10 June 2019 09:22 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLARAussieDollar Australia,AUD/USD,

AUD/USD is struggling to gain ground despite the above-forecast China exports data. The currency pair is currently trading at 0.6982, having hit a session low of 0.6979 soon before press time.

China's exports rose 7.7% year-on-year in CNY terms in May, beating the expected rise of 4.7% by a big margin. Meanwhile, imports, a barometer of domestic demand, fell 2.5%, missing the expected increase of 5.8% and down significantly from the 10.3% rise registered in April. As a result, the trade surplus ticked higher to CNY 279.100 billion from 93.57 billion.

In US Dollar terms, exports rose at 1.1% year-on-year, while imports dipped 8.5%, yielding a trade surplus $41.65 billion.

An uptick in China's exports indicates the global demand conditions are holding up well despite the escalating trade tensions. However, the domestic demand in China is weakening, meaning consumer spending may not be able to compensate for the decline in international trade and the nation could witness a deeper economic slowdown in the near future.

As a result, the riskier assets may come under pressure during the day ahead, pushing the AUD to fresh session lows below 0.6979. So far, however, the futures on the S&P 500 have remained bid with a 0.30 percent gain. Gold prices, however, have retreated sharply to $1,330 from 14-month highs above $1,345 hit on Friday. The American Dollar, therefore, will likely remain bid across the board.
