Introduction To AUD/USD

The AUD/USD cross currency pair (also known as the ‘Aussie’) is the sixth most traded currency in the world. The pair indicates the exchange rate between the Australian Dollar (the base currency) and the US Dollar (the quote currency), showing how many units of USD are needed to purchase one AUD.

To understand the origins and popularity of the two traded currencies, an overview of the history of the Australian Dollar and US Dollar is explained below.

The Australian Dollar

The Australian Dollar (AUD) was introduced in 1966 to replace the pre-decimal Australian Pound. As of 2016, the AUD accounted for 6.9% of the world daily share, behind the US Dollar, the Euro, the Japanese Yen and the Pound Sterling.

Much like the New Zealand Dollar and the Canadian Dollar, AUD is known as a commodity currency. This is because Australia’s exports comprise mostly of raw materials such as metals, oil and agriculture.

The AUD is a popular currency to trade due to high interest rates set by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). There is also good political and economic stability in Australia, plus limited government intervention in the foreign exchange market.

After the first few years of being pegged to both the British Pound and then the US Dollar, AUD was floated in 1983. After reaching its lowest ever value in 2001, the dollar recovered in 2009 before reaching parity with the US Dollar for the first time in 2010.

The AUD reached its highest ever value against the US Dollar in 2011, which was purportedly due to Europe’s sovereign debt crisis at the time.

The US Dollar

The US Dollar (USD) has been in circulation since 1775 by the Continental Congress and was formerly known as the Continental Currency. It wasn’t until 1785 when the new currency, the US Dollar, was issued.

In the 19th century, large silver deposits were discovered in Western United States, causing political controversy when the intrinsic value of silver in the coinage dropped. Some parties advocated switching to the gold standard, eventually leading to its adoption towards the end of the century.

However, after various influential factors including the World Wars and the Great Depression, the gold standard became too difficult to manage by the early 1960s. By the 1970s, inflation, caused by increasing prices of commodities and spending on the Vietnam War, led to the Dollar being worth less than the gold used to back it.

As a result in 1971, President Richard Nixon enacted the Nixon Shock, which cancelled the convertibility of the US Dollar to gold.

Trading AUD/USD: Pros & Cons

There are a few benefits and drawbacks to consider before you start monitoring price action and begin day trading on the AUD/USD.

Pros

  • High interest rates – The high interest rates set by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) are some of the highest among industrialised nations. This indicates a potentially stronger currency, making AUD highly popular among traders.
  • Volatility – The price of AUD/USD moves sharply in the market, creating attractive volatility for traders. You can open up a basic price chart to see these movements in real-time.
  • Stability – Today, Australia is considered economically and politically stable, compared to some other nations. There is also relatively low government intervention in the forex market.
  • Trade relations – Australia’s strong trade relationship with China and the Asia region results in a positive correlation with some popular commodities. This includes gold, one of the most traded commodities.
  • Diversity – You can trade a range of AUD/USD instruments, including ETF products, futures, forwards and options.

Cons

  • Leverage – Whilst leveraged trading can maximise profits, it can also increase losses if appropriate stop loss and take profit measures are not in place.
  • Volatility risk – Frequent changes in volatile markets such as AUD/USD can occur in just minutes and therefore can cause as many losses as gains.
  • Liquidity – Although AUD/USD is a highly liquid currency pair, the forex market does experience periods of low liquidity, especially outside of certain market hours. As a result, brokers will often increase their bid/ask spreads.

What Factors Affect AUD/USD?

Australian Factors

The price of AUD/USD is heavily affected by decisions made by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Department of Finance, who decide on interest rates and other fiscal policies in the country.

Traders should also stay on top of economic data relating to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which measures the performance of a country’s economy, as well as inflation indicators, including the Core Price Index (CPI) and the Production Price Index (PPI).

As the AUD is a commodity currency, make sure to also look out for the current trade balance, which represents the balance between imports and exports of all goods and services in Australia.

Some other financial assets will also affect the AUD/USD trading economics, including other currencies such as the NZD and JPY, as well as EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/CAD. Aside from gold, AUD/USD can also be directly affected by iron ore and natural gas. Of course, stocks of the Australian Securities Exchange will also influence the direction of AUD/USD.

US Factors

Along with GDP and inflation indicators, traders should keep an eye on decisions made by the US government, such as statements made by the administration, new laws or fiscal policy. The Federal Reserve of the United States is also the best place to look for changes to interest rates and bank lending in cases of financial crisis.

Furthermore, the US is able to artificially create high global demand for the US Dollar, due to its status as a reserve currency. Reserve currencies are used to purchase commodities such as gold and oil, creating demand for that currency. For example, it is thought that China’s interest in attaining its own reserve currency for the Yuan will in turn decrease demand for US Dollars.

Technical Analysis

The art of technical analysis using live online forex charts and graphs is a fundamental aspect of forex trading. Whether you’re focusing on a short-term or long-term outlook, technical analysis studies pip movements for both.

Real-time charts allow you to analyse historical prices and data on an hourly, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. Chart analysis therefore can help uncover price trends to make a prediction or forecast on future trends.

To make use of a current AUD USD price chart, you can explore a range of technical indicators, trendlines and other graphical objects on a standard candlestick or bar chart. Support and resistance levels are commonly used to determine the high and low points of price movements within a given time.

Support and resistance can also be used in conjunction with short-term or long-term moving averages, daily pivot points or Elliott Wave analysis. So whether you’re looking at price movements for the last week or the last year, these tools will easily indicate bullish or bearish trends when prices rally or fall.

Note that some indicators will work better on certain time frames. For detailed price analysis by the minute, for example, most platforms will offer 1 minute, 5 minute and 15 minute charts. However, you can also utilise 1-hour or 4-hour charts for a broader outlook.

Fundamental Analysis

As well as your live streaming charts, you can also forecast AUD/USD movements using fundamental analysis tools, which monitor economic, financial or political developments. These resources, tools and news outlets will release the latest regional news updates and analysis, as well as market sentiment and exchange rate chart predictions.

Sources such as Yahoo Finance, Bloomberg, Reuters, XE and Google Finance are excellent places to start. It’s also worth checking out any resources provided by your broker or trading platform, such as an economic calendar or an AUD vs USD news forum.

Some third-party tools can also provide invaluable exchange rate history analysis and commentary based on 1-year, 3-year, 5-year or 10-year charts. For currencies with a deep market history, you can also find 20-year and 50-year charts on some sources.

Automated Trading

If you’re short on time or want to diversify your AUD/USD strategy, you could also opt for automated trading techniques using Expert Advisors (EAs) or trading signals.

Expert Advisors are algorithmic trading robots which scan the markets for optimum conditions and trade on your behalf. There are thousands of EAs to choose from in the MetaTrader platforms, for example, each individually tailored for a specific asset or strategy.

Trading signals allow investors to subscribe to another provider within the platform and automatically copies the orders into their own account. This option isn’t for everyone, so it’s a good idea to check out the provider’s monthly success data and statistics before committing.

Correlation

Some currency pairs are intrinsically correlated with other pairs or assets, due to the relationship between the currencies and nations concerned. As such, correlations can be used to help traders avoid bad trades.

Perhaps the strongest correlation associated with AUD/USD is gold (XAU). Australia has a strong exports relationship with China and the Shanghai Stock Exchange and therefore has greater exposure to Asian economies than other nations.

As a result of this correlation, AUD vs USD tends to rise and drop with the price of gold, which is viewed as a safe haven against inflation. You can view this correlation easily by observing a live AUD/USD and gold chart.

Whilst gold has the most notable correlation with AUD/USD, some other currency pairs also share a positive relationship, including the USD/JPY and EUR/USD correlation. For example, if the price of EUR/USD decreases due to the strengthening of the Dollar, the price of AUD/USD will also decrease.

Risk Management

Before you buy or sell AUD/USD, it is essential to implement appropriate money management tools. Regardless of whether you’ve made a solid 1-month, 3-month or even 12-month forecast, there is no guarantee that you will profit from every trade.

Stop loss and take profit orders can minimise risk and protect open positions. A stop loss essentially pulls you out of a trade when the market moves against you, whilst take profit orders will lock in your closing price when a certain profit level is reached.

You can also use a risk/reward ratio to manage your expectations and determine the worth of a trade. The ratio compares the amount of money you are risking against the potential gain.

Session Times

Whilst you can trade forex pairs 24/7, there are ideal times to trade AUD/USD when daily volume and volatility peaks. Generally, the best time to trade the Aussie to USD is between 19:00 and 04:30 GMT.

Note that the trading hours available in your trading platform will depend on the timezone of your broker. Traders should also remember that brokers may increase the buy/sell spread outside certain market hours during periods of low liquidity.
