    That was the week that was.....(8)

    A storming end to the week for the Pound; the Australian Dollar continues to soar; continued water-treading for the Euro and the division and disagreement continues in the US. That Was The Week That Was. https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/weekly-brief-31-july-202022/
  2. Hi Okila, Yes, your EU cards will all work fine here - but beware of the exchange rates and fees that your German bank may charge. Definitely check their policy on those. Otherwise, before I moved here I opened an expat account with Westpac and it was seamless. Could not have gone smoother. You can use your Aunt's address as your temporary address and just go into your local branch when you arrive to collect your ATM cards etc. You won't want to do your FX Euro/AUD through them though because their margins are very big. Shop around for a good FX provider who only take a small margin. Good luck!

    Is it safe??

    Hi Aussiebird! Most of our Australian client business is due to the purchase/sale of property and, understanding that this is an incredibly important chapter for them, and also having had to go through the process ourselves during our respective moves to Australia, we're especially sensitive to their needs and concerns. Being the No1. global non-bank International Payments provider, it's our responsibility to set the precedent for our sector and both create and maintain the most stringent standards possible. Please let me know how I can help you further ~ Sue.

    Is it safe??

    Good morning Alan, Per International Payment Services Regulations, clients of Moneycorp have the funds in their accounts 'ringfenced' so they cannot be accessed or used by anyone other than the client. For our clients' safety, we detail this on our website: https://www.moneycorp.com/en-gb/news-hub/staying-secure-online/

    The fears grow around an Australian second wave; true extent of UK unemployment causing concern; a few (Japanese) stumbling blocks for the NZD and the US seemingly going from bad to worse. Depending on whose Tweet you read. That Was The Week That Was. https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/weekly-brief-17-july-2020/

    International student budgeting ~

    With the Chinese Government advising their students not to return to their studies in the UK, due to the UK not being Covid "safe" for Chinese Nationals (BBC), plus the strong warning for them not to go to the US and Hong Kong, Australia could still ultimately be the favoured International Education centre of choice for young Chinese citizens, despite the fear rhetoric and increased trade tariffs China is placing on Australia as punishment for the Australia Gvmt leading the World Leaders C-19 global inquiry.

    International student budgeting ~

    With many governments now relaxing their Covid guidelines on the International education sector, overseas students have started to return to their foreign campuses ~ https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/top-ten-budgeting-tips-for-international-students/

    The second wave in Victoria; UK pledging another £30B to keep the economy going; An up and down week in the Euro and yet more division and dis-unity in the un-United States of America. That Was the Week that Was. https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/weekly-brief-03-july-20202/

    Weak pound

    Some really wise and balanced comments here ~ thank you both! I think it's worth remembering the volatility of the time we're in; politically, economically, medically.... in all my years in financial markets I don't know anyone - my retired peers in their 60s, 70s & 80s included - who has ever known a time like this. Previous patterns of economic behaviour are nowhere to be seen. Governments are printing Trillions of their own currency, seemingly with no regard for how that implicates their economies in the future. Stock markets are continuing to rise - on extraordinarily bad news - and the worst possible unemployment numbers don't appear to be significant anymore. Looking historically, GBP/AUD at 1.80 is a fair price. We have Brexit looming, an American election, an ongoing war of words with the Chinese Government, International trade agreements to be negotiated and, come September when jobkeeper payments around the world are due to cease, the true extent of global unemployment. Everyone would be wise to be cautious.
