Weekly roundup: Australian Dollar retreats as risk appetite slumps

currency-newsWeekly roundup: Australian Dollar retreats as risk appetite slumps
The Australian dollar weakened last week, as the appeal of the risk-sensitive currency was undermined by a prevailing risk-off mood.

Adding to the pressure on the ‘Aussie’ were ongoing concerns over Australia’s coronavirus resurgence and its potential impact on the country’s economic recovery.

However, some limited support was offered by the publication of Australia’s latest trade figures as the country reported a massive trade surplus in May.

Meanwhile, the Australian Dollar looks well positioned to rally this week, following the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) latest policy meeting, in which it indicated it will start to taper its stimulus programme later this year.
