AUD/GBP likely to retest 0.5800 - Westpac

Key Quotes

“Recent news flow has been more encouraging, with potential for sharp AUD outperformance on an agreement.”

“The GBP mood will of course be largely driven by Brexit developments. We doubt that UK PM May’s compromise bill will pass Parliament on 15 Jan, raising the risks of a “hard” Brexit. This could see sterling re-test the Dec 2018 lows around 1.7200, or AUD/GBP 0.5800.”
