Weekly roundup: Australian Dollar fluctuates in erratic trade

currency-newsWeekly roundup: Australian Dollar fluctuates in erratic trade
The Australian dollar traded in a wide range last week, as fluctuating market sentiment rocked the risk-sensitive currency.

This resulted in AUD exchange rates retreating through the first half of the week as a gloomy market mood prevailed, before soaring in the tail end of the session, amidst a sharp pullback in the US dollar.

Also infusing volatility into the ‘Aussie’ throughout the week was uncertainty over Australia’s current coronavirus situation as well as a deterioration in domestic business and consumer sentiment.

Looking ahead, the primary focus for AUD investors this week will be on the publication of Australia’s latest jobs report.

Economists are forecasting unemployment will have risen again last month amidst Australia’s current coronavirus woes, which could place some pressure on the ‘Aussie’ later in the week, especially if the market mood continues to sour.
