AUD exchange rates near 1.50……

AUD GBP Lower After Dismal Employment Report

Australian Dollar exchange rates have strengthened over night and pushed towards 1.50 against the pound and below 1.05 against the US dollar. Today is a relatively quiet day but anyone with an interest in the Aussie should watch out for US GDP data released tomorrow afternoon (13:30 GMT) as this may well shift investor confidence and hence a shift in AUD demand. With the US being a global barometer for world growth these figures will be keenly viewed by investors and may drive investor confidence either way. In theory if the figures are as expected or better then this should give a boost to investors and you may see a drive towards riskier currencies such as the Australian Dollar, if figures are worse then expected then you could see the reverse. For this reason tomorrow in particular could prove a volatile day on the currency markets.
