Market Update: Construction Work Done Misses Forecast

The AUD/USD trades slightly bullish at 0.7235 despite the worse than expected construction work report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The figure shows a change in the total inflation-adjusted value of construction projects completed. This release gives insight into the GDP data which is released about a week later.

Economists were expecting a slight drop from 1.8% to 0.8% this month, but the actual figure plunged dramatically to -2.8%.

What’s Next?

  • GBP – Bank Stress Test Results
  • GBP – BOE Financial Stability Report

The reports are tentative but most likely to come out during the London session. Stay tuned!
