The European economy is in recessionary territory, with the added pressures of resurgent inflation. Inflation and bond yields had been collapsing in Europe, towards the latter part of 2023, with a combination of tumbling inflation and recessionary economic conditions. A resurgent inflation will ensure tight monetary conditions remain in place for an extended period. This will support the EUR (although ensure recessionary conditions remain). Similar pressures exist in the Australian economy so the cross rate will not move dramatically.
