Australian Dollar weakens off of the back of comments from the Governor of the RBA (Daniel Wright)

AUDGBP Sees New Yearly Lows as Protests Grow

The Australian Dollar has lost ground against most major currencies in trading today following comments from the Governor of the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia) mentioning that he would be keeping an open mind on intervention to weaken the Australian Dollar in the near future.

This confirms the constant opinion that the RBA feel that a strong Australian Dollar is damaging the Australian economy and that there is certainly further scope for another interest rate cut in Australia in the near future.

An interest rate cut is generally seen as negative for the currency concerned and a hike in rates positive so a cut in rates again may further weaken the Australian Dollar and even the pure speculation of this and other possible measures coming into play may weaken the Australian Dollar further against the Pound and could push Sterling – Australian Dollar rates closer to 1.80 in the lead up to Christmas.
