We’ve had a nice little uplift in AUD/USD since my last report on Thursday or Friday with a spike above 0.7150 thrown in yesterday, right now we aren’t too far off the 0.7100 figure. But murmuring’s from bank economists and other places suggest the Aussie Dollar at current level’s is an opportunity for importers as opposed to a sign of things to come, with the bias for AUD/USD definitely to the downside. Some forecasts are as low as 0.6500.
