What affects USD > AUD exchange rates?
The Australian dollar may be weaker than the US dollar overall, but not by much. The Aussie dollar’s performance is due to high interest rates — the result of a country’s currency strength — set by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). The RBA has been able to continuously set high interest rates because of Australia’s strong long-term growth. The country continues to add jobs to the labor market, and the unemployment rate has slightly decreased. These factors heighten the appeal of the Aussie dollar and could lead to a reduced USD and AUD exchange rate in the future.
USD > AUD historical exchange rates
The US dollar has been predominantly stronger than the Australian dollar, with the exception of two years within the past decade. So far this year, the exchange rate has hovered between 1.3061 and 1.3421 Australian dollars against the US dollar.
In 2011 to 2012, the Aussie dollar was stronger than the US buck. Analysts speculate this was a result of Australia’s significant increase in the inflation rate increase during that time. Many projected that Australia’s interest rates would increase, driving an increase in the Australian dollar as a result. However, based on exchange rates for this currency pair in the following years, the projection was short-lived: The US dollar crept back up as the dominant currency.
How much is traded between these currencies?
About 5.1 trillion US dollars are traded in foreign exchange markets daily, according to the Bank for International Settlements’ 2016 Triennial Central Bank Survey. The US dollar accounts for 88% of this daily foreign exchange trading, while the AUD accounts for 7% of it.
Despite this large gap, the Aussie dollar is still one of the top five currencies traded in foreign exchange markets, with an average of $348 billion in trading daily.
Experts speculate that the USD/AUD combination remains a common foreign exchange currency pair due to the volatility of the Aussie dollar. Since the value of this currency fluctuates often, there is opportunity for competitive exchange rates on both sides.
