AUD/USD tops 0.79 on RBA bullishness, USD weakness

AUD/USD was capped by the April 2016 high of 0.7840 and formed a double top. This did not last too long. A double-whammy of events sent the pair shooting higher.

AUD/USD is currently trading at 0.7915 and the high so far has been 0.7923. Will it reach 0.80?

End of Trumpcare?

Reports coming out of the US discuss a failure of the the attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare. The health issues of Senator McCain mean that it becomes even harder to pass a revised Senate version of the new bill.

A failure to repeal the Affordable Care Act after 7 years of vows to do so mean a lower chance of passing other topics: tax reform and infrastructure spending.


We are currently back to levels last seen in early 2017 and basically 0.80 is the next level.
