Westpac weekly AUD video

Sean Callow

The Australian dollar was hit hard this week by the market's scramble to price in a Federal Reserve rate rise this month, which boosted the US dollar across the board but last night hit the Aussie harder than most. I note the key comments from the Fed and look at Australia's key data this week - a surge in Q4 GDP but a slide in the Jan trade surplus. I also take a quick look at the week ahead and the likely trading range for AUD/USD.
