Current trend

Since opening today, the AUD is falling across the market and against the USD and JPY.

The pressure on the pair is going to increase, as the Australian economy looks weak amid falling commodities prices and a slowdown of the Chinese economy, its biggest trading partner. Furthermore, the near-zero GDP growth and low inflation in the country could force the RB of Australia to further cut its interest rate from the current 2%. At the same time, the safe-haven Yen positions are going to increase while financial markets remain unstable.
