Westpac note that their "base case remains for the Aussie to trend higher, to $0.80 by end-Q3 and $0.82 by year-end. Australia has printed 40 consecutive monthly trade surpluses and a record 8 consecutive quarter of current account surpluses. A$ should benefit from anticipation of synchronised global recovery over 2021. However, A$ is the weakest G10 currency over the past month, reflecting the RBA's aggressive balance sheet expansion (QE exceeding the pace of debt issuance) and perhaps also investor anticipation of China-related headwinds for Australian exports and FDI beyond the current resources boom. Australia's sluggish vaccine rollout also puts a limit on the breadth of economic recovery from the pandemic. Ranges may take some time to give way on the top side."
