FXStreet (Guatemala) - AUD/USD moved onto the 0.90 handle with demand coming from Japanese demand in AUDJPY. Then we had the Chinese PPI and CPI data reinforcing the pair on the bid.

AUD/USD may not be effected too greatly on the Chinese data, as explained by Sean Callow, strategists at Westpac Banking Corporation ABN, “…shouldn’t have much impact. Inflation isn’t a very pressing concern in China right now, with growth having decelerated and the stronger yuan helping cap inflation”. Chinese CPI data came in slightly higher than expected. Technically for AUD/USD, Jim Langlands, Founder at FXCharts, said , “On the topside, there will be good sellers now at 0.9000, beyond which the jobs-data-inspired gap needs filling, up to 0.9015. Beyond there could have the shorts beginning to feel the pain which could inspire a run back towards 0.9070”. Other than that, a reminder from yesterday, the Australian employment fell 3.7k in January, which was well below expectations and the worst print in a decade that took the pair as low as 0.8227. Today, AUD/USD benefitted from a bout of poorer data that came today in the form of US retail sales contracted 0.4% inter-month during January, while excluding the Auto sector sales came in flat.
