…keep being asked about this pair.

I’m remaining stubbornly bullish for the moment, but feel the pair is trapped between some large demand around 1.0450 and the importer offers ahead of the 1.0500 barrier. There are also expiries today for the NY cut at 1.0450 and 1.0465.

AUD’s presently around 1.0465
