Expat Chat Ep 53 – Where To Next For The Australian Dollar


Welcome to the fifty third episode of #Expatchat where we discuss the latest tax and financial issues affecting an #Australianexpat.

In today’s Expat Chat we talk about where to next for the Australian dollar.

With the recent weakness of the Australian dollar against the US Dollar many Australian expats (especially those who earn their salary in either USD or a currency pegged to the US Dollar) are wondering does it have further to fall and/or should they be transferring funds to USD.

The recent risk off strategy with investors has meant that the USD Index is currently trading at a 20 year high but what does that mean for other currencies like the Pound, Euro, Yen and many other currencies?
