Over the course of the weekend we have seen continued strength from the Australian dollar, will this continue? This morning the pound is again losing ground against the Aussie, however the pound is down across the board so this would appear to be Sterling weakness rather than a continuation of strength form the Australian Dollar. The pound could be in for a rocky week in the run up to GDP estimates from the NIESR (National Institute for Economic and Social Research) a well regarded think tank. Figures are often relatively accurate and will therefore be viewed closely. Should the figures continue to show a negative etrend then we could see further moves towards 1.47 – just 1 cent of the record levels seen in February this year and creating some fanatastic sell opportunities for anyone holding Australian dollars. Also this week for anyone looking at GBP/AUD we have the Bank of England inflation report on Wednesday at 10.30 – keep an eye on this foany clues as to future Montary policy from the Bank of England.
Prior to this anyone with an interest in teh Aussie should keep an eyo the Reserve Bank fo Australia interest rate decision overnight. We are expecting to see rates on hold at 3.5% but any announcements from the Reserve Bank may cause short term swings, however I would still expect the Australian dollar to continue to see positive movements ands can see 1.47 on GBP/AUD and EUR/AUD down towards 1.16 – although I do feel the Aussie is beginning to reach its peak and any AUD sellers should sseriously consider taking advanatage.
