Australian business confidence improves

Feb 12 2013, 2:28am CST | by

Sydney, Feb 12 (IANS) Australian business confidence was broadly steady in January after recovering strongly in December from very poor levels, a private survey released on Tuesday by National Australia Bank (NAB) showed.

Sydney, Feb 12 — Australian business confidence was broadly steady in January after recovering strongly in December from very poor levels, a private survey released on Tuesday by National Australia Bank (NAB) showed.

NAB's monthly business survey showed business confidence rose one point to an index level of plus three points in January, reported Xinhua.

However, business condition remained in negative territory in the month despite improving three index points to minus two.

The bank said the confidence recovery was mainly helped by the rally in global equity markets and generally better activity in China, as well as recent rate cuts from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).

"However confidence remains below long-run average levels," NAB said in its report.

"Business conditions were generally better across interest sensitive industries in January, but fell heavily in mining."

NAB says it still sees the need for the RBA to cut the cash rate by 75 basis points in 2013.

Oct 29 2014 9:31am CDT | Source: Forex News

With the markets fully focused on the outcome of the FOMC tonight, it may be best to avoid looking at assets which will be directly impacted by the Fed’s decision. In this regard, one currency pair that has caught my eye is the AUD/CAD, which could be on the verge of resuming its downward trend. Although the AUD has strengthened recently, so has the CAD after the Bank of Canada dropped the “neutr ...
