Westpac weekly markets video
In our brief weekly video, I discuss how the US dollar made a comeback against most currencies this week - the British pound the notable exception after the BoE meeting. I note the key factors supporting the US dollar, which helped keep a lid on AUD/USD (unexpected support from US politics!). I also briefly recap Australia's jobs data and take a quick look at the week ahead, dominated by the FOMC meeting.
