Low Interest Rates Helping Australia Transition from the Mining Boom / Interest-Rates / Austrailia

By: Nicholas_Kitonyi

Australia’s transition from its reliance on mining exports to other sectors appears to be gathering pace as more businesses continue to take advantage of the low interest rates.

The Reserve Bank of Australia reduced the base interest rate, popularly referred to as the cash rate, twice last year from 2% to 1.75% and again to 1.5%. The cash rate remains fixed at 1.5%, which when compared to many developed countries is still one of the highest.

Will AUD/USD Selling Continue? / Currencies / Austrailia

By: Richard_Cox

Currency markets have seen some interesting moves over the last few weeks and one of the better trading setups can now be seen in the AUD/USD.  These scenarios have come largely as a result of recent developments within the central bank. 

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) recently announced that it would be willing to take extensive and unorthodox measures to right the economy, if the need arose. The current interest rate is 1.75%. If this turned out to be the case and the RBA opted to decrease the base interest rate to 1%, then options like government bond-buying would be likely considered. Such a measure would likely reduce the value of the Australian Dollar, which is presently trading near 0.76 USD.

Yen Strength Sends AUDJPY Towards Multi-Year Lows / Currencies / Austrailia

By: AnyOption

Sustained inaction from the Bank of Japan combined with another round of loosening by the Reserve Bank of Australia has seen the AUDJPY continue to tumble, trending back towards multi-year lows reached back in February during the risk-asset rout.  With Central Banks eagerly waiting on the Federal Reserve to act in order to alleviate pressure on local currencies, risk assets are likely to continue tumbling despite the extreme policies implemented by certain institutions.  However, with the BoJ not forecast to move on policy short-term and the RBA maintaining its accommodative stance, the stage is set for further losses in the AUDJPY pair as risks to the outlook mount.  Barring another round of direction intervention in the Yen from the BoJ, the current trend in the pair is likely to prevail over the medium-term amid worsening external conditions.

2015 – Is the Aussie Dollar Going Down ? / Currencies / Austrailia

By: Submissions

Badre Bouarich writes: At a time where oil prices are hitting the ground driven by a high supply - low demand environment, several market actors are getting to expect a depreciation of the so called commodity currencies. As defined by the financial dictionary ( ) and studied by IMF Senior Economists ( ), commodity currencies are currencies whose exchange rate is highly correlated to the price of a commodity.

AUD/USD Approaches Solid Support / Currencies / Austrailia

By: Nadia_Simmons

The Reserve Bank of Australia left its benchmark interest rate at a record-low of 2.50%, which pushed the Australian dollar higher against the greenback. As a result, AUD/USD bounced off yesterday’s fresh 2014 low, but will we see further rally?

In our opinion, the following forex trading positions are justified - summary:

Australia could be near-debt-free by the end the decade.

It's nearly impossible to believe in our debt-fueled world. But it's true.

Australia's housing bubble is back in full swing. Prices rose almost 11 percent over the past year to record levels in absolute terms and near-record levels as a share of household income.  Prices in Sydney rose 15 percent.

Household debt as a percent of income surpassed the previous record.

Martin Hutchinson writes: I like Australia's stock market right now. I think it provides you with a ton of upside potential.

Virtually every analyst on Wall Street disagrees, of course. They hate Australia. But they didn't like Chile, either, where we're up 46%. And they weren't crazy about Indonesia - another market that's making us good money.

What The Rising Australian Stock Market Could Mean For The AUD/USD / Stock-Markets / Austrailia

By: ForexPros

Decided to look at the Australian stock market today: there's a pretty strong impulsive rally that should move even higher, as we need five waves from early April low. Are you wondering how this will impact the AUDUSD? We suspect that if investors will keep their money in shares; which is expected based on the price action, then there will be no demand for cash (AUD) which may keep the AUD/USD below resistance.

Australia Stocks Bear Market Forecast 2013 / Stock-Markets / Austrailia

By: readtheticker

Australia has been called the lucky country, its big and beautiful and unfortunately exposed to massive downside risk.

Applying the Elliot wave to price charts is an art with a little science. However in the case of the Australian All Ordinaries Index (AORD) the Elliot Wave 5 count is very easy. A technical Elliot Wave point is that a 5 wave count marks the end of the rally, yet you can have multiple 5 wave counts in a wave that end together. When you get multiple 5th waves peaking together it is an 'OMG' moment ('oh my god') as it resembles increased downside risk to follow.

In Endgame, Jonathan Tepper and I devoted a full chapter to talking about the problems we saw looming in Australia, and for that we have taken some heat! What's not to like about the Land of Oz? In our view, it might be the bubbles that are building. I asked Jonathan to update us on Australia, and in today's Outside the Box he gives us an in-depth look.

Australia's War Waging Strategy Despite Lack of Threats and Enemies / Politics / Austrailia

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAustralia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, ranked in the top 10 in gross domestic product per capita. It is one of the most isolated major countries in the world; it occupies an entire united continent, is difficult to invade and rarely is threatened. Normally, we would not expect a relatively well-off and isolated country to have been involved in many wars. This has not been the case for Australia and, more interesting, it has persistently not been the case, even under a variety of governments. Ideology does not explain the phenomenon in this instance.
