BKSWING – New AUD/USD Order for 12.02.2014

The Australian dollar traded sharply lower today on the heels of the RBA rate decision. Governor Stevens stated that a lower dollar was “likely to be needed” – a turn of phrase that some analysts in the currency market understood as a signal that the central bank may become much more active in guiding the currency lower. The RBA is clearly concerned about the sharp decline in commodity prices, especially iron ore which represents one out five Australian export dollars to the country. Tonight’s more dovish language may have been a warning to the market that the central bank would be willing to consider another rate cut and as traders adjusts their own expectations, we could see further weakness in AUD. To position for this possibility, we are laying out a fresh AUD/USD sell order.
