Will the Pound hold onto its recent gains and remain above 1.70 versus the Australian Dollar? (Joseph Wright)

AUDGBP Makes Back Some Lost Ground From Last Week

The Aussie Dollar has lost quite a lot of value against the pound recently, making converting Pounds into Aussie Dollars a much more attractive proposition.

All major currencies have lost value against the Pound in recent weeks as the clarity of the Brexit plan and the snap election called by Theresa May (UK Prime Minister) have offered the UK economy some much needed certainty which has resulted in a boost the Pounds value.

Sterling is currently trading at 2017 highs against most major currency pairs, and those planning on making a Pound to Aussie transfer may wish to consider that the Aussie Dollar has been losing value against the US Dollar as well as against Sterling, which suggests to me that the currency is coming under pressure generally speaking.

It’s for this reason I’m expecting to see the Pound to Aussie exchange rate continue to climb and consolidate above 1.70, but Sterling sellers must be aware that the currency could be vulnerable should it become public that trade negotiations are going badly.

Economic data out of the UK is also becoming increasingly more important, as the currency has been driven mostly by political unfoldings for the past year whereas investors are now keen to keep a close eye out on how the UK economy is performing during these sensitive times.
