Australian Trade Balance News
The Australian Bureau of Statistics anticipates releasing numbers for the trade balance news on Thursday (April 01, 2021). According to economists, the trade balance news might register a reading of 9700 M in February, as compared to the reading of 10142 M, in the month before.
The trade balance reflects the difference between the imports and exports level of a country. Export data indicates economic growth while import data represent domestic demand. If export data exceeds the import levels, it indicates a strengthening economy and suggests a bullish trend for the AUDUSD pair and vice versa.
Given the macroeconomic outlook of the pair, selling the AUDUSD pair around 0.7613 might be a sensible trading decision in the short term.
