AUD Down on Sliding Confidence

Yesterday’s high: AU$1.6521

Yesterday’s low: AU$1.6435

Australian Dollar Drifts Lower vs. GBP

The Australian Dollar was pressured lower on Wednesday after Westpac’s consumer confidence index dropped by -1.2% in August, taking the measure to 95.5.

AUD exchange rates were also feeling the strain as a result of comments from Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Deputy Governor Christopher Kent, who said that the markets should be concerned about stretched household balance sheets.

AUD Outlook: Consumer Inflation Expectation in Focus

Australian data is now lacking until the publication of Australia’s Consumer Inflation Expectation report for August. A lower figure could reduce the probability of a near-term Australian interest rate increase and weigh on the Australian Dollar.
