      AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR FUNDAMENTAL FORECAST (JUNE 14-19): NEUTRAL

      ● Australian Dollar may struggle to capitalize on rosy market mood

      ● Falling inflation bets and local bond yields sapping AUDs appeal

      ● Focus on the Feds tapering outlook and RBA meeting minutes next

      The AUD/USD pair extended its daily slide in the second half of the day on Friday and touched a weekly low of 0.7689. As of writing, the pair was losing 0.75% on a daily basis at 0.7694.

      The renewed USD strength during the American trading hours seems to be weighing heavily on AUD/USD. After spending the majority of the day in a tight range below 90.00, the US Dollar Index gained traction and is currently up 0.56% on the day at 90.56. Amid a lack of significant fundamental drivers, the 2% recovery seen in the benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield is helping the USD find demand

      All things considered, it has been pretty quiet for the sentiment-linked Australian Dollar. AUD/USD one-week implied volatility continues to aim lower from late February peaks. The currency continues to trade broadly sideways against its major peers, but with a very slight downside bias since finding a top earlier this year. This is despite market mood remaining fairly stable and upbeat, something that tends to benefit AUD.

      So, what gives and will this trend continue? Monetary policy expectations are likely playing a key role here. The decline in longer-term Treasury yields is not just isolated to the United States, but it has been spilling over to Australia. The local 10-year rate aimed for the worst weekly performance in about one year as Australian inflation expectations eased.

      This was in the aftermath of this month‘s RBA rate decision, where the central bank further cooled hopes of sooner-than-anticipated policy tapering. This is likely weighing against the Australian Dollar, preventing it from capitalizing on the rise in the S&P 500 and progress in Chinese equities. Due to Australia’s key trading relationship with China, market sentiment from the latter can make its way into the latter.

      With that in mind, this environment is likely shaping up for another quiet reaction to Australia‘s next jobs report on Thursday local time. More focus may be given to the RBA meeting minutes, where the Aussie is likely vulnerable to further dovish commentary. The Aussie will also be tuning in for a speech from the central bank’s governor, Philip Lowe, hours before the jobs report.

      Arguably, the most important event risk will likely come from the United States. The Federal Reserve will be hosting its next monetary policy announcement. Markets will be focusing on updated interest rate projections, and Chair Jerome Powell will almost surely be asked about where the Fed stands on tapering policy. Reiterating that inflation is transitory, especially amidst Mays high CPI report, may keep sentiment stable.
