GBP/AUD Recovered from Lows on Friday

Friday’s high: AU$1.6356

Friday’s low: AU$1.6192

Australian Dollar Fluctuates

The Pound to Australian Dollar exchange rate saw wide fluctuations throughout the past week. Australia’s recent data has been too mixed to support the ‘Aussie’ and risk-sentiment has not been steady either.

Due to the volatile ‘Aussie’, the Pound was able to easily recover from its recent lows. Sterling became more appealing on Friday due to a few better-than-expected UK ecostats.

July’s UK manufacturing production report beat expectations in both yearly and monthly prints, while NIESR’s UK growth projection for Q3 came in at 0.4%.

AUD Outlook: Australian Employment Stats in Focus

The Pound to Australian Dollar exchange rate could see busy trade in the coming days, as vital UK and Australian ecostats are due this week.

Britain’s August inflation results will be published on Tuesday and the Bank of England (BoE) will hold its September policy decision on Thursday.

The Australian Dollar will mostly react to Thursday’s Australian employment results. Investors will be paying particular attention to wage growth data.
