This mornings RBA minutes have concluded some members of the RBA were reluctant to cut interest rates and this is the reason why the Australian Dollar strengthened against all of the major currencies this morning.
However stats also released this morning are suggesting there is an 80% chance further rates cuts could occur as early as August this year and Capital Economics economist for Australia Paul Dales also agrees a rate cut is very likely.
If you are trading GBPAUD, I believe rates will slide back towards the 1.80s come June 23rd, therefore if you need to buy Australian Dollars before the referendum date I would look to trade sooner rather than later. Where as if you are selling Aussies holding off for a few extra weeks could work in your favour.
After the referendum as long as the UK remain part of the EU there is an argument to suggest we could see rates back above 2!
