General Consensus

The Australian dollar continues to be volatile governed by overseas events. A recovery this week in the AUD is mainly based on rumours of a IMF bailout of Italy.

You get the feeling we are in holding pattern with Italy frantically trying to get its debt under control while international investors pull their money out of Italian debt on mass. This has not yet forced Italy to seek outside help, it could be a matter of time.

The European debt crises has eroded confidence around the world, slowing the European economy and the UK economy. The Chinese data out last week that sparked the sell off, demonstrated proof that China now is beginning to slow due to Europe. This will in turn slow Australia over the medium term, and perhaps could be a consensus for a RBA rate cut next Tuesday.
