Over the past few weeks Sterling has been making greater and greater gains against the Australian Dollar (as well as most major currencies recently). Due to a potential Grexit, the amount of money that has been moving out of the Euro into ‘safe haven’ currencies such as the Pound is difficult to comprehend. Alongside this, a drop in the price of iron ore has seen GBP/AUD extend further than with other currencies paired with the Pound.
However, today a lot of the artifical value accrued in Sterling recently finally began to deflate, and it did so dramatically. As the title above states, it was a staggering 3 cent move in a single trading day. Positive moves forward in the Greek talks have encouraged a lot of the capital to move out of Sterling and back into the Euro, which is why we are presented with better selling opportunities for the Australian Dollar currently.
