Amid the decline of the Australian dollar, the pair AUD/USD is correcting around 0.6685.
The reason for the negative dynamics was poor macroeconomic data: according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, retail turnover in October fell by 0.2% after rising by 0.6% in September, which was the first decline since falling by 4.1% in December 2021 and is a consequence of the weakening in all leading industries, except for products retail trade. The leaders of the negative movement were department stores, which lost 2.4%, closely followed by the clothing trade sector (–2.0%), and for the first time since January, the indicators of restaurants and cafes decreased (–0.4%). ABS Head of Retail Statistics Ben Dorber said the correction results from higher interest rates and could be long-term.
