Good morning,

Asian markets saw the Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia spoke before the Meeting Minutes were published. The expectations of an interest rate cut has diminished and as a result of this the Aussie Dollar found buyers. AUDUSD trading at 0.7685 at time of writing. The correlated Kiwi dollar also found interest leading into the Aussie data release as their third quarter Consumer Price Index data was slightly higher than had been expected. NZDUSD trading at 0.7192 at time of writing.
