Australian Gross Domestic Product
Earlier today, the Australian Gross Domestic Product was reported by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The forecast was a gain of 0.5% in the total value of all goods and services produced by Australia. The result was better, as the GDP rose 0.6%.
When we look at the year-over-year change, then the Australian Gross Domestic Product gained by 3%, which was above the forecast of 2.6% in Q4 2015, compared with Q4 2014.
Overall, the report was in favor of more gains in the Aussie dollar, and as a result EURAUD moved down. Let’s see whether the current recovery in EURAUD can break 1.5100 or not.
