AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP

The Australian dollar has held onto last week’s gains after the US Non-Farm Payroll (NFP) report missed estimates causing a dip in US Treasury yields. Implied Fed funds futures show a dovish repricing of interest rate expectations to roughly 95bps of cumulative rate cuts by December 2024 vs 60bps just a few weeks ago. This may an overreaction as one data print does not make a trend and further confirmation will be required in the coming months.

Earlier this morning (see economic calendar below), Australian job ads and inflation gauge figures slumped and could point to turnaround in the economy as tight monetary policy take ahold. Although low impact data, this could have an impact on tomorrow’s Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) rate decision that currently has money markets pricing in a 60% chance of a rate hike (refer to table below).

Consensus is for a rate hike after persistent high inflation plagues the economy but with global recessionary fears gaining traction, will this deter central bank officials from hiking again? After keeping rates on hold (4.1%) from June this year, a jump could see the AUD back up around the 0.6600 level.
