ADP Non-farm payroll (USD) 2:15 pm

ISM Non- Manufacturing PMI (USD) 4:00 pm

Comment: The strength on the Aussie could be attributed to the RBA Gov Lowe who delivered a hawkish speech at the National Press Club, highlight of his speech included him saying that he expects consumer spending to pick up as the resource sector is in expansion, he further stated that the labour participation rate has increased and this is met with the increase in supply of labour, which is good for Australian economy. Technically if the instrument closes above the 200 EMA on the 1hour we should expect a strong bullish breakout.
