Tonight at 8:30 pm Eastern Time, the Australian Bureau of Statistics will release new Aussie CPI data tonight, providing two key measurements of inflation. Quarter-over-quarter CPI, as well as quarter-over-quarter ‘Trimmed Mean’ CPI (which excludes the 30% most volatile items), will be made available to the public. CPI is forecast to increase by 1.6% and Trimmed Mean CPI by 1.5%; if the real numbers exceed these expectations, AUD could experience further bullish momentum following a multiyear downtrend. However, if the reports fail to meet market forecasts, AUD may see a continuation of these longform downtrends across pairs. You can check on the results here.
Thus far, Australia’s annual inflation (currently sitting at 6.1%) has lagged behind that of many other countries, giving the Reserve Bank of Australia little reason to indulge in comparable hawkishness. With over 67% of institutional traders shorting the Australian Dollar, both fundamentals and sentiment currently weigh against the currency, making the likelihood of the latest Australian CPI data becoming a bearish fundamental catalyst for AUD quite plausible.
