Concerns over Brexit and China continue to put pressure on GBP and AUD

GBP/AUD rates have fallen by almost 5 cents in the past week, with the pound now seemingly struggling to hold its position above 1.80. This key threshold has been broken this morning, with AUD making further inroads today. Investor confidence in sterling is decreasing.

GBPAUD falls from the mid 1.80s

Considering the current state of Brexit negotiations, I wouldn't be surprised to see GBPAUD fall below 1.80s in the upcoming weeks.

At the moment the UK Government are suggesting that 95% of the Brexit deal is agreed, however the Irish border remains the...

Pound to Aussie dollar rate drops to 2-week low despite poor data out of...

The Pound to Australian dollar rate has hit a 2-week low this week after hopes of a Brexit deal being agreed in the short-term have stalled.

This week Chinese Q3 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) figures came out lower than expected, and they also showed...

Presently, if media reports are to be...
