· *US Dollar Index goes into consolidation near 95.*
· *Wall Street trades mixed on Monday.*
· *Coming up: The RBA is scheduled to release its October meeting minutes.*
After spending the Asian session in a tight range a little above the 0.71 mark, the AUD/USD pair gained traction and rose to a fresh daily high of 0.7150 before starting to consolidate its daily gains in the NA session. As of writing, the pair was trading at 0.7135, adding 0.3% on a daily basis.
The USD's market valuation on Monday seems to be the primary driver of the pair's price action on Monday. The US Dollar Index, which staged a modest recovery on Friday, started the new week under pressure and extended its losses after the data from the U.S. showed that retail sales in September increased by 0.1% on a monthly basis to fall short of the analysts' estimate of 0.5%. After dipping below the 95 mark for a short time, the DXY retraced a small part of its daily losses and was last seen at 95.08, where it was down 0.16% on the day.
Other data from the U.S. showed that the NY Fed's Empire State Manufacturing Index improved to 21.1 in October from 19 in September to reveal healthy activity in the regional manufacturing sector.
Earlier in the day, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) Ian Harper argued that a weaker AUD would continue to boost the growth. During the early trading hours of the Asian session, the RBA is going to release the minutes of its October meeting, at which they decided to keep the policy rate unchanged at 1.5% as expected.
*Technical levels to consider*
The initial resistance for the pair aligns at 0.7150 (20-DMA) ahead of 0.7200 (50-DMA/psychological level) and 0.7240 (Oct. 2 high). On the downside, supports are located at 0.7100 (daily low), 0.7065 (Oct. 4 low) and 0.7000 (psychological level). Reported by FXstreet.com 2 hours ago.

Omnichannel Australian Fashion Brand Aims to Expand Success Into New Channels and New Markets
PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) October 15, 2018
Workarea, a leading SaaS enterprise commerce platform, announced today that Spell & The Gypsy Collective, a growing Australia-based fashion brand, has selected the cloud-based Workarea Commerce Platform to support its strategic growth goals.
“Being predominantly a digital brand, we want to deliver a seamless experience to our customers whether they are shopping with us on our website, at our flagship boutique or with one of our global brand partners,” said Sami Gilroy, Digital Strategy Manager at Spell & The Gypsy Collective. “By moving to Workarea, we’re going to be able to provide this experience to them in a way that is also more efficient and effective for our team.”
Founded in 2009, the modern-bohemian fashion brand has seen steady growth and increasing interest in their product globally and across selling channels. As the team embarks on the next phase of their business, implementing rich customer experience improvements across their websites and retail points of sale on a single technology platform is the main goal in the selection of Workarea.
“Our product was built for omnichannel innovators like Spell & The Gypsy Collective,” said Darren C. Hill, CEO and Cofounder of WebLinc, parent company of Workarea. “We are seeing increased demand for sophisticated commerce capabilities without the high costs and slow pace of legacy providers. We’re proud to partner with Spell & The Gypsy Collective to power their next phase of growth.”
The team at Spell & The Gypsy Collective began exploring new platform options when their growth made executing their digital roadmap more challenging. Currently running Shopify Plus, Spell & The Gypsy Collective found that their resources were spending much of their time performing manual tasks. From a technical point of view, they were reaching the limits of what was possible without having to use layers of third-party apps that forced many compromises.
“We’re frequently looking to other retailers for inspiration. During one of these audits we discovered that a number of the sites we were drawn to were built on Workarea,” said Sami.
Among other enterprise commerce platform vendors, Spell & The Gypsy Collective considered Salesforce Commerce Cloud alongside Workarea. What made Workarea stand apart was its focus on digital team efficiencies as well as sophisticated platform capabilities that included multisite, localization, product recommendations, merchandising, Workarea Site Planner, business user collaboration, and native content management.
“With Workarea, having the ability to preload campaigns, homepage changes and promotions was incredibly appealing and will mean our team can focus on bigger picture improvements,” added Sami. Speaking of her team’s longer term plans on the platform, Sami described a Workarea Commerce-powered point of sale application to give store associates an integrated tool to provide a fuller profile of their customers.
Workarea, a product by WebLinc, is the only ecommerce platform combining commerce management, content management, search and analytic insights into one user-friendly system for online merchants. The platform offers ecommerce teams including marketers, merchandisers, producers, analysts and customer service agents a unified tool so they can become an agile, creative, collaborative, data-driven and ultimately customer-focused organization.

About Spell & The Gypsy Collective
Spell & The Gypsy Collective is a modern-bohemian fashion brand. The Spell story began when sisters, Elizabeth and Isabella, came together in the town of Byron Bay, Australia and decided to continue something they started as children. Dreams inspired by Latvian grandparents for something better, something more beautiful. They wanted to do the same, wild thing. And so they did. Flowing hems, handcrafted embroidery, and age-old lace; whispers of a nostalgic yesterday, designed for the wondering wanderers of today. That was the start of the Spell story. And it still is today, as they continue to create beautiful, inspiring pieces from the town of Byron Bay. Only now, they want to share the same experiences with the world; from the way they style their days to the footprints they leave behind. Reported by PRWeb 33 minutes ago.
