Westpac weekly AUD video
This week the Australian dollar broke above 77 US cents for the first time since July 2015. I discuss the pivotal role of Fed chair Janet Yellen's speech in New York in driving the Aussie's gains. I also note what we expect the RBA will say about the AUD surge in Tuesday's statement and give Westpac's multi-month outlook.
