GBP/AUS at Five and a half year high!

4 Feb 2015

Sterling hits a 5 ½ year-high against the Australian dollar following the RBA’s decision to cut rates. The Australian dollar slumped against the British pound and US dollar overnight as the Reserve Bank of Australia cut its overnight cash rate by 25 basis points to just 2.25%. Whilst many market commentators had predicted such a move this time around, the fact that the RBA did also signal that further cuts are likely and that the fall in the value of the ‘Aussie’ dollar remains fundamental in helping to rebalance its economy.
