Thanks to the early morning announcement from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), stating that they would be keeping interest rates at 0.75%, investors have been able to breathe a sigh of relief once more. With investors happy, everything going as forecasted and the AUD starting to climb again on the interbank exchange rate, it has definitely been a strong week for Australia.
With news of the Coronavirus affecting the AUD more than some expected last week, these jitters wearing off is even further good news for investors who saw the RBA issue a rallying statement addressing the issue head on.
This has seemed to quell unrest for now, but it remains to be seen whether or not this unrest will resurface again when more news breaks regarding death tolls and especially whether or not it might be becoming an epidemic in the Western world.
Whilst the breakout is the single biggest threat to global markets at present, there may well be opportunity in this situation for the AUD, with researchers in China reassuring the world that they have now found a cure. This may well mean that the AUD can climb out of the red - where it has resided for several weeks - and attempt to edge itself over the GBP.
Finally, with RBA optimism driving the AUD upwards, paired with the statement put out earlier in the week from the Australian Monetary Police, there is a cautiously optimistic outlook on the horizon heading into next week. We could be about to see a much clearer picture thanks to the interest rate cut looking to be all but ruled out now.
Absolutely brilliant service, in particular special thanks to Mr Daniel Wright, who literally took care of us throughout the whole process (we are both pensioners)… we entrusted our life savings to him, and don’t regret it one little bit, Daniel was incredible.
Daniel Wright was easy to deal with over the phone and very professional. It made the International transfer very quick and easy. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.
Daniel Wright at Foreign Currency Direct came highly recommended to us by a friend and he and the Company have lived up to this recommendation with every transaction they have completed for us.
It’s a tad daunting and scary to change currency with a hitherto unknown company, and I was worried about it beforehand. My fears were unfounded: I can assure you that this firm is genuine and does exactly what they say they will do. Daniel Wright is a pleasure to deal.
The company gave me great confidence. A complete novice, as I am, in moving large amounts of monies around, my wonderful account manager Daniel was calm and precise in explaining the process to me. He was flexible, informative, professional, friendly. If I can recommend him to anyone then I surely will.
