Nick Griffin explained (VIEW LINK) just how quickly spends are being reallocated and Roger Montgomery’s assessment of Ten Network Holdings (VIEW LINK) highlighted the effects of this spend reallocation on the domestic TV market. The AUD has fallen approximately 30% in 2015. It may face further downside pressure if you believe Yellen, with the Aussie/US rate differential set to widen (possibly in September and probably by December).

Naos thinks the tourism sector will get a lift from the weak AUD (VIEW LINK).
