FX and your business weekly podcast: 19 May 2021

Our new podcast series to help small to medium sized businesses make sense of current market movements.

In this week’s podcast, Phin Ziebell is joined by our Head of FX Strategy, Ray Attrill and Perth-based Senior Markets Manager, Jonathon Cross.

Ray discusses:

  • The latest currency market developments
  • The significance of commodity prices – the sharp run up in iron ore price in particular – and what to look out of in coming days.
  • The significance of the recent strengthening in European currencies, which have seen the AUD/EUR and AUD/GBP cross rates fall back from highs seen earlier in the year.

Jonathan shares insights on our mining client activity in WA against the backdrop of the extraordinary strength in iron ore prices.

Listen above now.
