Australian Dollar (AUD) general currency information


What is the Australian Dollar currency code and symbol?

The three letter currency code for the Australian Dollar is AUD and the symbol is $.


Which countries use the Australian Dollar?

It is the domestic currency in Australia, Christmas Island, Cocos Keeling Islands, Heard And McDonald Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Norfolk Island and Tuvalu.

The Australian dollar is the fifth most traded currency in the world and is popular with currency traders, because of the high interest rates in Australia, the freedom of the foreign exchange market from government intervention, the stability of Australia's economy and political system, and the view that the Australian dollar offers diversification benefits in a portfolio containing the major world currencies, especially because of its greater exposure to Asian economies and the commodities cycle.

The currency is commonly referred to by foreign-exchange traders as the "Aussie dollar".


Australian Dollar (AUD) in the markets

November-26: In the weeks leading up to this report, the Australian dollar was among the best performing global currencies. A broader 2018 view will, though, show a currency that is struggling. The good news is that the Aussie’s prospects for 2019 remain good.

Important for AUD in November was the break of an important technical trendline that demarcated the 2018 downtrend. Between January and late October, the currency lost nearly 14 percent against the US dollar to trade at a 2-1/2-year low of $0.702. It had recovered by the time of this report into the $0.72s. Similar could be said of AUD’s performance against the euro.

Easing trade tensions between the US and China was another big positive for AUD in November.

Inaction on interest rates from the RBA has lended itself to lower AUD exchange rates but this will change next year. The inevitability of higher Australian interest rates will become the narrative in mid-2019, thinks Citibank, and this will drive capital into AUD and force its price up to $0.77. CIBC expressed a similar view in November, albeit with a slightly lower mid-19 forecast of $0.76.

The interactive chart below shows the USD to AUD exchange rate for the previous 3 months with rate alerts for days when the exchange rate moved up or down significantly or for 30 day highs and lows.
