    FXStreet (Delhi) - Michael Every, Research Analyst at Rabobank, notes that the Australian Q3 GDP this morning was a better than expected 0.9% q-o-q, 2.5% y-o-y.

    “However, domestic demand subtracted 0.5ppts, quite a shocker, with net exports doing the lifting (adding 1.5ppts).

    “However, once China decides which reserve currency playbook it is reading from, and the Fed decides how confident it is about hiking into a manufacturing recession, we will have a far better idea of what the RBA will be forced to do next.”
