All Eyes turn to Tuesday’s Interest Rate Decision (Daniel Johnson)

AUDGBP Looks for a Low with PMI Data Ahead

We have seen AUD strengthen this week over Sterling.  The general consensus was that China’s manufacturing date would come in low, demonstrating a further slow down in their economy. Australia are heavily dependent on their export of raw materials to the Chinese, so a drop will cause AUD weakness. However figures came in better than expected and we have seen an AUD spike. Personally I think this maybe a small window of opportunity for AUD sellers. I think there are some much deeper  problems in China’s economy that are yet to come to light. Have a little google for “China Shadow Banking”.

There is also serious problems with Australia’s over inflated house prices, a few months and it will become unsustainable. With these factors in mind there is an outside chance of a interest rate drop on Tuesday. Keep a close eye on the data release if you are buying AUD a drop could well push GBP/AUD back up to 2.20. Interest rate decision comes in at 3.30am on 6.10.15.

I do have several large GBP-AUD trades going through in the coming days that potentially I could tag new clients on to and achieve a very competitive rate. Please do get in touch if this is something of interest. I will guarantee to beat any bank or brokerage’s exchange rates.
