Are we seeing signs of a long-term base forming in the Australian Dollar (AUD), US Dollar (USD) pair at 0.6530? A January close below this level would be cause for concern and a rethink of where support lies. Certainly, when we look at the yearly open price circa 0.6815 the Aussie has come off a chunk in a short period of time. With the RBA done hiking interest rates, 2024 will be about cuts and the timing of these. We are forecasting 3 plus cuts in 2024. Let’s hope the banks pass on these rate drops to consumers- say are saying mortgage holders shouldn’t get too excited as not all cuts are passed down. The AUD may be pushed around this week by offshore forces based on no data publishing and an Australian Holiday Friday creating thin market conditions.
The current interbank midrate is: AUDUSD 0.6567
The interbank range this week has been: AUDUSD 0.6564- 0.6612
