Westpac weekly AUD video
The Australian dollar this week slid under 0.74 for the first time since early January. In our brief weekly FX video, I discuss how steep falls in commodity markets have taken a toll on the Aussie, despite support from an optimistic RBA. I also touch on the Australian trade data, take a quick look at the Fed policy decision and point out what to expect in the week ahead, with eyes on Australia's budget and AAA rating.
