    Australian dollar Outlook

    Since May the AUD/USD rate has traded in a range between 0.68 and 0.72 as the RBA has acted on a much predicted aggressive increase to interest rates.

    However, the AUD’s traditional vulnerability to risk leaves it exposed to a broader correction.

    Factors Affecting AUD Forecasts

    The Aussie dollar hit a recent high near 0.76 USD in early April but then has dropped back below 0.68 in June on global inflation and recession concerns.

    Minutes from the June meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) indicated they clearly have some way to go in raising rates which should help the Aussie as the year plays out.

    Previously commodity-linked currencies such as the Aussie dollar had been moving up as Russia’s tragic actions in Ukraine push up demand for oil and other natural resources since people were worried that the European economy is in trouble.

    Still by the end of 2022, the Australian dollar is expected by many forecasters to rise to US75¢ but with a wide range of forecasts from as low as 67¢ to 80¢ by December.

    Economists predict that if the RBA sticks to its promise and does not hike rates and the US Fed does, this could see the Australian dollar break below US70¢ over the first half of 2022.

     

    AUD is widely expected to rise to US75¢ by the end of 2022. However along the way the Aussie is forecast to have a volatile year against a range of currencies.

     AUD Outlook


     

    The US Dollar has proven itself to be a safe haven amid the Ukraine-Russia conflict as investors seek refuge from the uncertainty.

    A clear reflection of this is that the US Dollar index (measure of the USD strength against basket of currencies) is approaching 20 year highs.

    COVID impact on the Aussie dollar

    In the second quarter of 2020 AUD staged a rapid recovery through the months of April, May and into June up 25% from its mid-March lows to US70c in early June. This is due more to the perceived benefits to Australia of an awakening post-pandemic Chinese economy than the political-social situation in the US depressing the USD.

    The Aussie had been savaged in March sliding to US55 cents the lowest since 2003. Growing fears of the coronavirus outbreak moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and away from AUD, NZD and CAD.

    The virus was a double blow to the Aussie after the earlier threat of proxy war between the US and Iran in Iraq had also pared back some of the gains the Aussie had made coming into the New Year.

    The Australian dollar had started the new decade strongly climbing to multi-month highs helped along by cooling trade tensions between the United States and China and optimism for global economic growth in the year ahead.
