AUD/USD seen higher at 0.7500 in next 3 months – Goldman Sachs

Goldman Sachs’ analysts are out with their outlook on the AUD/USD pair for the coming months.

Key Quotes:

“AUD/USD has had a round trip since the G20 meeting last weekend, initially rallying on the US-China 'truce' before falling on weaker GDP data and perceived dovishness from the RBA Deputy Governor Debelle. 

In our view, Deputy Governor Debelle's comment that although the next move is likely a hike "there is still scope for further reductions in the policy rate" should be taken in the context of a speech dedicated to the policy response to the 2008 financial crisis rather than a signal on future policy direction. 

Further, at least some of the weakness in the GDP accounts should prove temporary and growth for 2019 should remain above trend. 

With a partial cut now priced into the curve, we think the risk-reward is favorable for AUD higher on a stabilization of both China data and CNY.

We forecast for the AUD 3 months at 0.75.”
