    AUD/USD Rate Unfazed by Australia CPI with Fed Rate Decision on Tap

    AUD/USD Rate Unfazed by Australia CPI with Fed Rate Decision on Tap

    • The Australian Dollar initially dipped as inflation data showed the local economy had entered deflation in the second quarter of 2020.
    • Stalling commodity prices may weigh on regional risk assets as the GSCI commodity index struggles to break key resistance.

    The Australian Dollar slid lower after quarterly inflation data showed the Australian economy had fallen into deflation in the second quarter of 2020.

    Although exceeding market expectations of a 2% drop, the consumer price index (CPI) fell 1.9% in the three months through June, driven by a collapse in oil prices and supportive intervention from the government.

    The quarterly trimmed mean gauge declined 0.1% resulting in a yearly increase of 1.2%, undershooting expectations of a rise of 1.4%.

    This release should do little to sway the stance of the Reserve Bank of Australia as the central bank “determined that it would not increase the cash rate target until progress is made towards full employment and it is confident that inflation will be sustainably within the 2-3 percent target band”.

    The Reserve Bank of Australia’s stance on negative interest rates, rising commodity prices and successful suppression of the coronavirus outbreak locally served as major drivers of the trade-sensitive Australian Dollar’s rally to fresh yearly highs.

    However, case numbers have surged in Victoria, Australia’s second most populous state, forcing Premier Daniel Andrews to reimpose ‘stage-three’ lockdown restrictions on July 7.

    So far, these restrictions have failed to limit the spread of the highly infectious virus and may lead to an extension of the economically devastating restrictions, as Andrews flagged that if cases “continue to go up and up [a] six-week shutdown will not be for six weeks”.

    With current restrictions estimated to cost the local government $1 billion a week and the state accounting for “about a quarter of the national economy”, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg believes the inability to ‘flatten the curve’ of infections is a “serious impediment to the nation’s recovery, not just Victoria”.

    Therefore, regional investors should continue to monitor local health developments, with a potential extension of lockdown measures perhaps triggering a surge of risk aversion and weighing on the performance of the Australia dollar.

    Furthermore, weakness seen in the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) could anchor regional risk assets as price struggles to break above key resistance.

    Granted, an explosive surge in precious metal prices seems to have steadied the ship for local equity investors, with gold climbing to fresh record highs and silver breaking above the $26/oz mark for the first time in seven years.

    However, the price of copper – known as a proxy for global growth – has notably stalled in recent days amid escalating tensions between the “Five Eyes” alliance and China which threaten to derail global trade relations.

    With that in mind, traders may keep an eye on the performance of the GSCI index as it attempts to fill the March breakaway gap (346.80).

    Inability to do so could result in a sharp correction lower, potentially coinciding with a rapid discounting of the commodity-sensitive Australian Dollar and ASX 200 index.

    Developments with China Continue to be Monitored

    Looking ahead, traders should continue to monitor developments between Australia and China, its largest trading partner, as vitriolic rhetoric could escalate into targeted tariff impositions.

    With Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin condemning the “wrong actions of Canada, Australia, and the UK in politicising juidicial cooperation with Hong Kong”, retaliatory escalation looks to be a likely outcome.

    To that end, a breakdown in trade relations could end the Australian Dollar’s tremendous 4-month rally and potentially trigger a period of sustained risk aversion.

    A1 Payment, a subsidiary of A1 Telekom Austria announced that users can now make payments using cryptocurrencies including #Bitcoin , #Ethereum and #Dash

    A1 Payment, a subsidiary of A1 Telekom Austria, said Monday users can now make payments using cryptocurrencies including bitcoin, ether and dash on its cashless payments app.

  • On its website, the firm said that regardless of the cryptocurrency used, payments would be converted to euros in real time so retailers would receive payment in fiat.
  • The addition of cryptocurrencies to A1’s payment platform will enable about 2,500 merchants to accept digital currencies. The moves follows A1’s decision last year to integrate services WeChat Pay and AliPay onto its platform.
  • Partly controlled by the Austrian state, A1 Telekom had announced a trial of cryptocurrency payments in a pilot program last year. That announcement noted that industries with close contact with tourists and business travelers were hurt by a backlog in the acceptance of digital currencies as travelers couldn’t pay with BTC, AliPay or WeChat Pay.
  • According to Reuters, A1 Telekom’s revenue declined by  2.4% to 1.1 billion euros in Q2. The report also said the firm plans to cut some of its planned investments for the year, including investment in 5G.

    How The US-China Capital War a Billionaire Warns Of Could Benefit Bitcoin

    How The US-China Capital War a Billionaire Warns Of Could Benefit Bitcoin

    Economist Ray Dalio is warning the world of a potential “capital war” brewing between the United States and China. He believes, that it could have devastating implications on the dollar, which could potentially impact Bitcoin.

    In such a scenario, how does a capital war between the two feuding global superpowers benefit the first-ever cryptocurrency?

    There are several ways that countries can go to war. There can be a war of words, sanction showdowns, and even outright military firepower. But there’s one not so obvious way that two countries can deal devastating financial blows to one another, that economic expert Ray Dalio is warning of.

    According to the billionaire investor, the ongoing tensions between the United States and China could soon erupt into a “capital war.”

    “There’s a trade war, there’s a technology war, there is a geopolitical war and there could be a capital war,” Dalio explained to Fox correspondents on an airing of Sunday Morning Futures.

    Since early 2019, the two countries have been embroiled in a trade war, that resulted in hard assets like gold and Bitcoin beginning to pick up pace. Investors who saw the writing on the wall, that a major economic shakeup was coming, began loading up on safe haven assets that year.

    A capital war would only escalate things further between two countries, and further fuel the uptrends that the precious metal and cryptocurrency have been on.

    Dalio says that the United States is acting as its own “worst enemy,” due to the ongoing money printing and mismanaged monetary policy. Deficits are skyrocketing by the trillions this year due to the pandemic relief efforts.

    He believes that if the United States and China get into a capital war where one forbids investments in the other region, it could have “big implications” for the dollar.

    Dalio further claims he’s worried about the “soundness” of money currently. The dollar is no longer sound money, and the Fed pledging to print another trillion at least as part of today’s stimulus package is proof.

    Bitcoin is as sound of money as it gets, hard-capped at just 21 million BTC to ever exist. Mathematical code keeps it that way, and no third-parties can intervene. It is for this very reason that Bitcoin could benefit enormously from a capital war.

    If one country prevents the other from investing in a portion of the global market in an attempt to weaken the other, it could prompt a flight from the fiat of these feuding countries into a non-sovereign asset like gold or Bitcoin.

    Gold has been soaring for that very reason, and Bitcoin has recently started to catch up.

    Beyond the capital war, a currency war could also be brewing. The United States is late to the game in developing a digital dollar, while China is preparing to roll out a digital currency of its own.

    Here too, Bitcoin as a non-sovereign asset bound to no country or central authority gives the asset benefits in a world where two economic superpowers cannot see eye to eye.

    Rather than let either of these two dominate the monetary supply moving forward, Bitcoin could become the next replacement for the global reserve currency.

    And any of the scenarios that Dalio warns of, could be a catalyst for such a change to take place.
