AUDUSD Holds to Gains Above 0.6600, Can the Battler Keep Going?

The Aussie held on to it’s gains and kept its momentum going above 0.66 cents. AUDUSD advanced 0.55% to 0.6625 in early Sydney trade this morning. AUD/USD hit a high at 0.66277. Following the RBA’s 0.25% rate cut on Tuesday, the Aussie has recovered as speculative shorts scrambled for cover.

Today traders will focus on Australia’s Trade Balance for January. The US Dollar bounced off a four-week low which should put a cap on the Aussie today. The yield gap between US and Australian 10-years widened last night (US 10-year at 1.0%, Australian 10-year at 0.71%). This should also cap any further short-term Aussie gains.
