Australian dollar - market update

The Australian dollar found its feet in the second week of March, ending a difficult period spanning back to late January. AUD strengthened to buy 0.785 US dollars, 0.638 euros and 83.8 yen.

AUD entered 2018 with verve and climbed to a 2 ½ year high against USD of 0.814 on January 26th, but things took a turn for the worse from then on as investors began to revise upwards their expectations for US interest rates and as Washington imposed US tariffs on imported steel and aluminium – tariffs that some said threatened to spark a global trade war. Given Australia’s open economy and reliance on commodity prices, threats to global trade are bearish for AUD. Post-tariffs, AUD/USD sank into the low 0.77s.

At the time of writing (March-12), useful technical resistance was waiting at 1.6 in EUR/AUD (equivalent to 0.625 in AUD/EUR) and 82.0 remained very solid support in AUD/JPY.

Forecasts: AUD volatility is set to dry up. A Reuters poll of analysts conducted in March produced a median estimate of 0.78 for AUD/USD for one-month and three-month horizons, and for year-end. This estimate marks little change from exchange rates in mid-March and is virtually identical to 2017’s year-end rate. The forecasts do at least represent an upward revision on those from recent months, most of which suggested a fall in AUD/USD this year to levels between 0.7 and 0.75.

Hong Kong dollar - market update

In 2017, the Hong Kong dollar twice threatened to weaken to 7.83 per dollar, as it did in early 2016, but support for the currency came in at that level. USD/HKD ended the year at 7.81. 2017’s weakness was the result of the widening spread in US-over-Hong Kong interbank interest rates.

In early 2018, HKD continues to weaken and having fallen in seven of the year’s first nine weeks to 7.825 (February-27), looks set for yet another challenge on 7.83. The level remains significant resistance in USD/HKD, although the real point of no return is 7.85; that being the upper extreme of the currency’s peg to the dollar (see ‘General currency information’).

Against the euro, HKD fell in February to three-year lows (EUR/HKD highs) near 9.82 per euro.

One expert said in February that he expects HKD to remain weak for the foreseeable future due to sizeable liquidity in Hong Kong’s financial system, which acts to keep a lid on interest rates paid on HKD.
