Currency Forecasts

Australian dollar

The mid-April to mid-May period was a shocker for the Australian dollar. It suffered across-the-board losses, including losses worth 5 percent against the US dollar. An exchange rate of US68.6¢ on Friday May-17 was the Aussie’s lowest weekly closing rate since early 2016.

Most recently, election jitters, a stuttering domestic economy and elevated trade tensions have driven the Aussie lower.

Following data on May-16 that showed a jump in the unemployment rate, which the RBA has said it is “paying close attention to,” implied probabilities for an interest rate cut in June rose to 60 percent, and that doesn’t bode well for near-term currency valuations.
