  2. The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    Positive news out of Australia has helped the AU Dollar. Australia’s unemployment rate falls to four-year low of 5.5%
  3. The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    A couple of weeks ago the media were speculating that the Bank of England governor's talk of higher interest rates was explicitly intended to prop up the pound. Yesterday's events may or may not have disabused them of that notion. Mark Carney talked sterling down. The governor probably did not set out to turn investors against the pound. He did, however, fail to give them what they were looking for; a direct steer towards an interest rate increase next month. So they were left wondering if he had indeed been bluffing, using the threat of a rate hike to send the pound higher so as to avoid actually having to deliver one. Mark Carney did reiterate his earlier comment that a rate increase might be appropriate "in the coming months" but that cab left the rank a while ago. Investors were underwhelmed and they demonstrated it by marking the pound down across the board - sterling was down by an average of -0.4%.

  8. The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    Australian dollar slightly higher against the pound. News this week so far - the RBA kept its Cash Rate benchmark unchanged at 1.5%. It also, in its statement, gave investors no reason to expect a rate increase in the next 12 months.
  9. The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    Yesterday, the Bank of England continued to be supportive of sterling. Chief economist Andy Haldane told a TV interviewer that the Monetary Policy Committee is "nearing the point" where it will increase interest rates. He argued that "rather than being a source of fear or trepidation, this ought to be a good news story". The pound strengthened by an average of 0.2%. The coming two days bring speaking appearances by central bankers from Japan, Britain, Euroland, Australia and the United States. Recent experience suggests that their observations will have more impact on exchange rates than the growth and inflation data which also feature on the agenda.

  12. Sterling soars against Australian Dollar

    The Australian Dollar came under pressure yesterday as the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) indicated it is in no rush to raise interest rates. RBA governor Philip Lowe appeared to play down the prospect of an Australian hike in the near future during a speech in Perth on Thursday afternoon after expressing his optimism towards Australia's economic outlook. This sent the pound to its highest point since June 2017 versus the Australian Dollar.

  14. The UK Pound V Australian Dollar

    Big movement in the GBP/AUD exchange rate this week. Good news for those transferring money from the UK to Australia. Reasons why? Reserve Bank of Australia suggested they would not raise rates for some time in Australia. North Korea/USA situation – tensions further raised creating risk off reaction which is negative for the Australian dollar. UK – positive borrowing figures, lowest since the financial crisis – helped the pound.
