GBP/AUD Outlook – Short to Medium Term (Daniel Johnson)

Increase in Risk Appetite Helps Support the Australian Dollar

Pound Forecast

There are several key factors that are currently influencing the value of GBP/AUD.  The main factor would be Brexit. The high court ruling as to whether the government will vote on the triggering of article 50 is due to finish in early January. This will give a clear indication s to whether

the UK’s exit from the EU will be a hard or soft or hard brexit. A hard brexit will surely cause significant pound weakness. I personally feel that a soft brexit is the more likely and the more sensible.

The recent US interest rate hike has seen the Australian Dollar become a less attractive destination for investors. The US dollar is considered as a safe haven investment and now with the promise of higher returns it is becoming the investors choice. It is also predicted there could be as many as three more hikes in the US by the end of 2017. Australian economic data is also not coming through as positive as it has been and Chinese growth is dwindling.
