Australian Dollar Is Mostly Flat Against U.S. Dollar

AUD/USD has recently made another attempt to settle above the resistance at 0.7800 but failed to develop sufficient upside momentum and pulled back while the U.S. dollar moved higher against a broad basket of currencies.

Yesterday, the U.S. Dollar Index found itself under significant pressure after the Fed left the interest rate unchanged and stated that it was not the time to think about reducing asset purchases. Today, the U.S. Dollar Index managed to find support near 90.50 and is trying to get to the test of the resistance at 90.70. In case the U.S. Dollar Index moves above this level, it will head towards the resistance at 91 which will be bearish for AUD/USD.

Today, foreign exchange market traders will focus on the economic data from the U.S. Analysts expect that Initial Jobless Claims report will indicate that 549,000 Americans filed for unemployment benefits in a week.

Continuing Jobless Claims are projected to decline from 3.67 million to 3.61 million. GDP Growth Rate report is expected to show that GDP grew by 6.1% in the first quarter on a quarter-over-quarter basis.
