    AUD/USD has been pressured to the downside with a second day of a weaker yuan fix by the PBoC.

    The price has been in steady decline since failing at the 0.76 handle as commodity markets and related currencies all took a turn for the worst, and the currencies remained low, despite a correction in some of the commodity sector, such as oil on the API inventories.

    The markets are turning heads now towards the FOMC after some not so positive data in the US shift over night in retails sales. "Tetail sales data for February were disappointing, with the control group unchanged and January's increase in the control measure revised down to +0.2% m/m vs +0.6% m/m initially reported. The clear implication is that it provides a dovish platform for the FOMC statement tomorrow and Yellen's press conference," explained analysts at ANZ.
