Australian Inflation

A closely watched indicator of Australian inflation rose for the fifth straight month in December, an early indication that easy central bank policy was having its desired effect. The TD Securities-Melbourne Institute consumer inflation gauge ­­­­climbed 0.5% in December and was up 1.8% from a year ago. That was the biggest gain in six months. In November, the inflation index nudged up 0.1%, which translated into a year-over-year gain of 1.5%.

Trade Idea

Considering the overall technical and fundamental outlook selling the pair around current levels appears to be a good strategy in short to medium term.
