3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Australian dollar and United Arab Emirates dirham

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the AUD vs AED, you should pay attention to both Australian dollar and United Arab Emirates dirham news and forecasts.

Australian dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

The Australian dollar took a hit in February and March, during which it gave up 4% of its value against the US dollar, and it continues to struggle in April.

In the third week of April, a rather dovish set of RBA meeting minutes eliminated gains made during a modest recovery period earlier in the month and the Aussie was once again in the mid-0.76s versus USD – it had been as high as 0.813 in January – and was close to long-term lows against the euro, in the low 0.62s.

Over the medium term, the Australian dollar is likely to receive support from commodities, which will continue to rally according to a PIMCO analyst. Speaking in April, the analyst said that commodities “would shine” given the transition to an environment in which low and stable inflation is preferable.

Any support lent by commodities will, however, be offset by a central bank that sees little reason for a near-term increase in interest rates and by uncertainties surrounding a potential US-China trade war. Trade tensions were at least eased when at the Boao Forum in April, Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke of the need to ease tariffs and further open up China’s economy.

In March, the median estimate of analysts polled by Reuters had AUD/USD at 0.78 at year-end.
