Will Sterling Weakness Continue to Help the AUD to GBP Rate Improve?

Overnight, unemployment rate figures for Australia were released. The figure surprised many financial experts by coming in better than expected (0.2%). This gave temporary relief for aussie sellers with rates dropping back into the 1.98s. However since then rates have steadily crept back towards 2.

Over the last month GBP/ AUD exchange rate has fluctuated 3.98%. If you had traded £200,000 at the high compared to the low you would have received an extra 16,000 aussie dollars!
