The AUD/USD finished higher on Wednesday and inside the previous day’s range as investors reacted to reports that the implementation of the corporate tax cuts in the tax reform plan may be delayed until mid-2018.

This news could affect U.S. economic growth which could weaken the U.S. Dollar because it will likely mean the Fed may have to adjust the number of rate hikes it has planned for 2018.
