Westpac weekly AUD video
Martina's turn on our brief FX video this week, with the Aussie having traded lows since January. At the start of the week though, the Aussie received a boost from the positive risk sentiment following the first round of the French presidential elections. Martina discusses how Australia Q1 CPI and US politics impacted markets, and looks ahead to next week’s RBA decision, Australian trade balance and the FOMC meeting.
