Long Term Overview:

Economic Analysis

The Recent RBA Interest Rate Decision turn out to be more dovish than expected primarily because of external demand issues for Australian exports and a weakening domestic environment. As a result, the AUD is forecast to see further negative sentiment.


The United States and Canadian government have forged a new trade agreement to replace NAFTA, preserving President Trump’s ability to impose a 25 percent global tariffs on auto parts from Canada and Mexico – The USMCA trade deal is set to strengthen the dollar in the mid – long term, as a result of a combination of lower market uncertainty and stabilisation of the continents long standing trading relationships.


Strength in the Dollar is forecast to see a further growth after the Federal Reserve implied once again that FOMC Interest Rate policy is likely to remain relatively hawkish; preventing excessive inflation in a firming economic environment. Interest rate normalisation is expected to be in the region of 2.50% to 3.50% which may reinforce overall positivity in the greenback. From an Economic stand-point, Price may see a continued drop south in the AUDUSD in the Long term.
