Business conditions stayed rock solid in September, while confidence edged up following the big decline last month. Business conditions are holding at levels just a little below the peaks experienced prior to the GFC.

Overall, the AUDUSD pair might continue to correct higher, but most likely to face sellers near 0.7800-0.7805.
