3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Euro and Australian dollar

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 EUR vs AUD, you should pay attention to both Euro and Australian dollar news and forecasts.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

On June 14th, the euro had one of its worst days in recent memory after the ECB signalled it would leave interest rates unchanged at 0.0 percent until the latter stages of 2019. A day later (the day of this report), the euro was trading in the mid-$1.15s versus the dollar and looked set to lose more of its value (earlier in the year it had traded in the mid-$1.25s), and had fallen towards the bottom end of its long-term trading range against the pound, at £0.873.

The ECB did at least announce it would phase out quantitative easing in Europe, which kept the euro’s losses within reasonable limits. QE will be terminated at the end of the year.

Goldman Sachs described the June ECB meeting as a “material negative for the euro.”

Prior to the ECB decision, Danske Bank had estimated a median price for EUR/USD in H2 2018 of 1.18; the bank saw a return to the 1.20s as unlikely in the near term (that's almost certain after the ECB meeting). Danske had predicted a “foot-dragging” ECB that would be “reactive rather than active.”

Australian dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

The Australian dollar could slump more than 10 percent against the US dollar into the "mid-60 cents" region within twelve months, said a senior money manager in June. Given RBA Governor Philip Lowe’s insistence that “there is no strong case for a near-term adjustment in monetary policy,” there is little incentive for investors to hold AUD instead of USD (which will benefit from future Fed hikes), the money manager believes.

A fall to 65 US cents (at 74.4 cents in mid-June ’18) would take AUD back to financial crisis levels last seen in early 2009.

Also pessimistic on the Australian dollar are Westpac and ANZ. Westpac have forecast AUD at 72 US cents in mid-2019 and ANZ have advised clients to “sell the [AUD] rallies.”

Technically, the outlook for AUD/USD remains poor. Longer-term charts show AUD/USD breaking from an upwards trend channel and meaningful psychological support won't be in play until the 70 cents handle.

Against the New Zealand dollar, AUD fell 2 percent in the weeks leading up to this report to N$1.072; however, a bird’s eye view shows AUD/NZD drifting sideways for the past 3 ½ years.
