The Australian dollar was hit but succeeded in bouncing from those levels. What’s next? The team at Nomura analyzes everything moving the Aussie:
Here is their view, courtesy of eFXnews:
Nomura FX Strategy Research outlines 3 AUD’s bearish factors that are in play against other 3 bullish factors.
On the bearish side: 1) Softer near-term growth momentum. 2) Lower level of Australian-centric commodity prices such as iron ore. 3) Lack of a positive monetary policy impulse.
On the bullish front: 1) The synchronised global recovery. 2) Australia’s improved balance of payments picture. 3) Relative stability in the long end Australian-US real yield spread.
Strategy-wise, Nomura recommends holding a bearish AUD bias on key crosses such as against the EUR and GBP.
EUR/AUD is trading circa 1.4745, and GBP/AUD circa 1.3760 as of writing.
