The AUD remains in inflationary conditions as does the GBP, but the interest rate differential favours the Pound. The UK has experienced amongst the highest inflations levels in Europe and is well advanced in the rising interest rate environment. Although the differential favours the GBP, they may be reaching the end of the cycle and the Bank of England may choose to maintain at high levels, rather than raise rates again. The RBA has indicated that they may support further rate rises and this may be a short-term support for the AUD.
