Australian Dollar dips below 2.00

axiafx vs banks

The Australian Dollar has fallen below $2 to the Pound for the first time in recent memory this morning, due to a combination of factors which have combined to make sending money to Australia yet more expensive this week.

  1. Australian interest rates were held on Tuesday
  2. Retail sale in Australia rose more than expected (2.2% in March)
  3. Australian inflation increased
  4. Investors are switching back to higher-yielding currencies like the Aussie

All these have placed the Aussie in high demand, increasing the price and therefore decreasing the exchange rate. If you have to send Australian dollars abroad for any reason in the next few weeks or months, contact your UK currency company for some help.
