AUDUSD weekly analysis from January 6 to January 10, 2020 -

The basic elements

AUDUSD fell to 0.6940 after China released its monthly Caixin Service PMI data that deteriorated early Monday. This currency pair was previously supported from PMI data from Australia. However, the risk of war between the US and Iran has weighed on market sentiment and pinned AUDUSD below the lowest price level last week.

New York Federal Reserve chairman John Williams recently stressed the need to stick to the 2% inflation target. This is considered to have triggered the retreat of the US dollar despite the increased purchasing power of the greenback after tensions between the US and Iran.

Recent news has shown that Iran's revenge against the United States is quite high and so the risk of war is evident. Therefore, the risk of the market is more severe with the 10-year Treasury bond interest rate falling to the lowest level in a month of nearly 1.77%.

After the hot rally, profit-taking ability plus basic factors could push AUDUSD to recover before the next move.
