GBP/AUD Forecast (Matthew Vassallo)

Australia Dollar Lower as Victoria Extends Lockdown

GBP/AUD rates have dipped slightly during Wednesday’s trading, ahead of tomorrow’s UK Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures. The Pound has enjoyed a fine run over recent weeks, with GBP/AUD rates getting close to a 6 year high on multiple occasions. However, the AUD has found support under the 2 level and I do feel it will require a further shift in market conditions to tip rates above this threshold.

Tomorrow’s data is key for the UK, as a bullish reading is likely to solidify the Pound’s position. Similarly any dip below expectation could push GBP/AUD levels back towards 1.95, which would certainly bring some respite to those clients looking to sell AUD after a tough couple of weeks. With little data of note for Australia in the run up to the weekend, I anticipate tomorrow’s figures to carry even weight than usual, in determining GBP/AUD positions over the coming days.
