Westpac weekly markets video

The Australian dollar is on the back foot today as risk appetite sours, but it has mostly had a good week, reaching 6 week highs against the US dollar. Much of its strength stemmed from Australia's GDP report, where growth accelerated to above 3%. But the details of the report were less impressive. In our brief weekly video, I discuss this and the Aussie's commodity price support and then take a quick look at next week's key policy decisions by the FOMC and the ECB.
