The AUD/USD pair put a halt to its bullish run this Tuesday, ending the day in the red in the 0.6960 price zone. The pair bottomed at 0.6898 during the European session, weighed by the sour tone of equities, later bouncing on the back of the broad dollar’s weakness. Australian data released at the beginning of the day was mixed, as the NAB’s Business Confidence improved to -20 in May from -45 in April. The NAB’s Business Conditions for the same period came in at -24 from -34, missing expectations of -16. On a positive note, the ANZ Job Advertisements improved to 0.5% in May from -53.4% in April.
Early on Wednesday, Australia will publish the June Westpac Consumer Confidence, previously at 16.4%, and April Home Loans. China will publish May CPI and PPI data.
