Westpac weekly markets video

This week AUD/USD fell to its lowest point since January 2017, close to 73 cents. Once again, much of this was simply due to the strength of the greenback, but there was also some pressure from the slide in the Chinese yuan. In our brief video, I take a look at why the yuan's move is so unusual and what it could mean for the Aussie. I also briefly touch on the RBNZ meeting and the key factors to watch in the week ahead.
