AUSSIE DOLLAR –  flat ahead of key data releases!

At 10.45 AEST today Wednesday the Aussie dollar was trading at USD$0.937 firming slightly from yesterday morning’s rate of USD$0.933 but could be heading for a period of volatility in the face of a series of key data releases this morning. The AU dollar strengthened slightly late Tuesday and early Wednesday, rising to US93.78¢ ahead of the release first-quarter Australian inflation figures and a preliminary reading of Chinese manufacturing activity for April from HSBC. The Australian Reserve Bank tempered its rhetoric on the need for a weaker exchange rate after the surprise jump in four-quarter CPI last year sparked fears of a faster-than-expected impact of a falling currency on imported inflation. Data that is stronger than expected forecasts for underlying inflation which is at 0.7 per cent for the quarter and 2.9 per cent for year-on-year may see the Aussie dollar push higher. Inflation is forecast to rise to 0.8 per cent for the three months and take the annual rate to 3.2 per cent, which is above the Reserve Bank's target band, which could see the RBA consider the cash rate increase again at next month’s May meeting. ...........
