More of the same with respect to the Aussie dollar with the local currency broadly lower against all majors. If you haven’t before considered hedging some of your upcoming exposures it could be worthwhile looking at this.
Hedging via a Forward Contract allows importers to cover their future foreign currency exposures at today’s rates. Meaning instead of potentially dealing at lower levels in 2-3 months time, you can lock in today’s rate for that future date. Typically only a small deposit is required to do this, which means importers cash flow is kept in tack.
