Westpac weekly AUD video
This week I discuss the Teflon Aussie dollar, which hit a 1 month high despite higher US interest rates and weak commodity prices. I suggest a potential culprit. I also look to the week ahead, featuring Australian Q3 GDP, the ECB meeting, Fed Chair Yellen's testimony and US payrolls, suggesting a trading range for AUD/USD through these risk events.
