FxWirePro: EUR/JPY slips below daily cloud, better-than-expected EU Consumer Confidence indicator fails to impress
FxWirePro: AUD/USD mildly bid after upbeat China inflation data
AUD/USD chart - Trading View
AUD/USD was trading marginally higher on the day at 0.7165 at around 04:00 GMT.
The pair has stalled previous session's slump after data released early today showed higher-than-expected Chinese CPI numbers.
Consumer Price Index, released by the National Bureau of Statistics of China showed China July CPI came in at +2.7% YoY, beating expectations at +2.6%.
Further, China July PPI printed at -2.4% YoY, better than forecasts at -2.5% in a Reuters poll.
The recent shift in the market’s mood along with upbeat inflation numbers from China have supported the pair and stalled downside.
Technical studies support upside. Bearish divergence on the daily charts keeps minor downside pressure.
