    AUD/USD Price Forecast – Australian Dollar Trying to Build Base

    The Aussie dollar has rallied again during the trading session on Wednesday, as it looks like we are trying to build a little bit of a short-term basing pattern.


    Dollar Edges Lower After Powell's Comments Prompted Gains

    The dollar edged lower Wednesday, consolidating after strong gains during the previous session after Fed Chair Jerome Powell indicated the U.S. central bank is likely to speed up the tapering of its asset purchases. Driving the earlier dollar gains were comments from the head of the Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell, to the Senate Banking Committee on Tuesday. "At this point, the economy is very strong and inflationary pressures are higher, and it is therefore appropriate in my view to consider wrapping up the taper of our asset purchases, perhaps a few months sooner," said Powell, while indicating that it was time to "retire" the word transitory when talking about high inflation levels.
