Currency news and forecasts for Hong Kong Dollar and Australian Dollar

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the HKD vs AUD, you should pay attention to both Hong Kong Dollar and Australian Dollar news and forecasts.

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

27-January-19: 2018 was a reasonable year for the Hong Kong dollar. Against a basket of major currencies, HKD appreciated by 4 percent, which was much better than a near-10 percent loss in 2017. It was, though, something of a stuttering end to 2018 and HKD has had mixed fortunes in early 2019.

As is well known, HKD follows, to a large extent, developments in US monetary policy. In December, after lifting US interest rates, the Fed lowered its expectations for future hikes due to so-called “cross currents” (China, Brexit, trade wars etc.). Skepticism among analysts over future Fed hikes has for some time been the main reason for HKD pessimism for 2019, but now, there is also the prospect of a US economic slowdown to contend with.

“A slowdown in the US economy is likely to weigh on USD [and therefore HKD] in the second half of this year,” a CIBC researcher said in January.

Of the same opinion was an expert at ING, who argued that USD, and therefore HKD, would soon “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

17-January-19: The Australian dollar recovered strongly following a "flash crash" in early January which saw it briefly trade at a 10-year low of 67.4 US cents.

By the time of this report, AUD/USD was back at 72 cents and roughly in line with December’s median exchange rate. The Aussie was similarly strong against other major currencies following its mini crash.

Several months ago, most analysts agreed that the Aussie was heading higher in 2019, but things have changed. In recent months, investors have become increasingly certain that no increase to Australian interest rates will be seen until 2020; there is, in fact, now a 25 percent chance of an RBA cut, per derivatives pricing. Inaction on interest rates will force capital away from Australia and towards countries where rates are higher or are expected to increase.

One senior researcher at BNP Paribas said in January that the Australian dollar would “get absolutely crucified and could suffer a 25-30 percent [long-term] fall.”

In opposition to that view, at least relative to the US dollar, was a CIBC analyst, who said that at current levels the Aussie was “very undervalued” and was his “best bet” for 2019. The analyst’s view was based upon there being a positive resolution to the US-China trade spat. The Aussie could be worth as much as 78 US cents in the second half of 2019, the analyst said.
