    Aussie Dollar Outlook

    In late January and again in May the AUD slipped below the key 0.70 USD mark, its lowest level since mid 2020.

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

    Factors that affect Australian dollar exchange rates

    The Aussie dollar is a proxy in the markets for risk appetite, so AUD tends to go up and down depending on how confident traders are about growth prospects for the world economy.

    Australian dollar exchange rates are especially sensitive to news about China due to the two countries strong trade ties. Any increase in Chinese construction creates demand for iron ore, this is positive for AUD being Australia’s major export commodity.

    AUD to GBP

    AUD to GBP 90-Day Currency Trend Chart with Hi, Low, Up, Down AlertsAUD to GBP at 0.5652 is just 0.7% above its 90-day average 0.5615 with range 0.5276-0.5796. AUD/GBP Rates

    In February and March the GBP/AUD exchange rate dropped on the impact of the Ukraine situation on commodity prices — this was good for AUD and bad for GBP.

    During April and May the pound-aussie rate improved back towards 1.78, but as we move through 2022 the prospect of more Australian interest rate rises sooner than expected could also boost the Aussie dollar vs Sterling.

    The effect of Ukraine crisis on energy prices hurts the euro and helps the gas and oil exporting Aussie and have helped the AUD/EUR rate to rise back to 4 year highs trading around the 0.66 level (1EUR=$A1.5).

    The NZD has dropped back relative to AUD from mid November into 2022 with AUD/NZD reaching 1.10 in May. The risk-off shift sparked by the Ukraine situation coupled with a hawkish Federal Reserve, seemingly impacting the Kiwi dollar more than the Aussie.

    AUD/HKD has risen back to the 5.8 level since late January mainly due to AUD strength as Australia profits from energy prices hikes driven by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    This strength stand in contrast to last year when the Aussie dollar saw a long slide against the HK dollar due to AUD weakness against the US dollar.
