The actual result was better than the forecast, as there was a rise of 0.4% compared with the last decline of 1.8%. However, the index was still below the 100 mark. The report added that:

This is the eighth consecutive month where the Index has printed below 100 indicating that pessimists continue to outnumber optimists. The Index is not sending encouraging signals about the outlook for consumer spending.

Overall, the AUDNZD pair is trading with a positive bias, and may soon break 1.0590 for more gains in the near term.
