Westpac weekly AUD video
The Aussie dollar largely held its ground against the US dollar this week but fell notably against the pound, the kiwi and the Canadian dollar. In our weekly video, I discuss what Australia's inflation data means for the currency and for the RBA outlook. I also take a brief look at the week ahead, with a focus on Australia's trade data and the FOMC meeting. AUD/USD risks look skewed to the downside near term.
