What affects AUD > BRL exchange rates?

Factors that affect how any currency trades against another are sociopolitical atmosphere, prices and inflation rates, foreign trade and monetary policy and export-to-import price ratios.

Less aggressive factors are consumer confidence about the economy and economic growth, the strength of other currencies, investor speculation and day-to-day news about natural disasters, elections and new government policies.

Here are a few factors that affect the value of the Aussie dollar specifically:

  • Commodities and output. Australia’s economy is driven by production of metals and grains, as well as reports on its crops and harvests.
  • Exposure to Asia. A resources boom in China, India and Japan has pushed the Aussie dollar high — too high for some speculators.

Here are a few factors that affect the value of the real:

  • US interest rates. The Brazilian real is sensitive to changes in US interest rates that affect how foreign investments in emerging markets.
  • Policy changes in Asian countries. Brazil extensively trades with Asian countries like China, which means that its currency is affected by commercial policy changes in those countries.

If you want to predict where the currencies are headed, consider this fact: The value of a currency is heavily related to the strength of its country’s economy.
