AUD/USD Predictions and Expectations

The AUD/USD exchange rate has been a focal point for economists and financial analysts, especially when looking towards 2024, 2025, and beyond. The collective sentiment and predictions from various sources provide a nuanced outlook for the currency pair, influenced by economic policies, global market dynamics, and geopolitical factors.

Predictions for 2024

For 2024, there’s a general consensus among financial institutions for a modest improvement in the AUD/USD exchange rate. Predictions suggest a range of outcomes, with the Australian Dollar expected to strengthen against the US Dollar. NAB forecasts the AUD will trade at 0.73 USD by December 2024, with an optimistic long-term view reaching $0.78 by December 2025.

ING anticipates the exchange rate to be at 0.71 USD by June 2024, climbing to 0.73 USD by the year’s end, attributing this to sluggish Chinese growth and high interest rates that have rendered the AUD as the most “undervalued currency in the G10 space.”

Westpac’s economic report predicts a slight increase to 0.70 USD by the end of 2024.

However, Commonwealth Bank raises concerns about a potential economic recession in 2024, which could momentarily push the AUD below 0.60 USD, albeit expecting a quick recovery as the Federal Reserve might cut interest rates more rapidly than anticipated​.

Predictions for 2024

Headwinds and Tailwinds

The Australian economy faces both headwinds and tailwinds that could influence the AUD/USD trajectory. The RBA’s monetary policy, aimed at containing inflation and averting recession, has introduced a tightening cycle with rate hikes. Such measures, along with high inflation rates and the potential for further rate adjustments, play a significant role in shaping the currency’s future value. The CPI inflation reaching a peak annual rate of 7.3% in the September quarter indicates the pressure on the economy and the currency​.

Forecasts Beyond 2024

Looking beyond 2024, the trajectory appears more varied. Projections from audtoday.com and longforecast.com extend into 2025 and beyond, with fluctuations anticipated in the exchange rate, showing both periods of appreciation and depreciation against the USD. The broader forecast into 2028 and beyond suggests potential depreciation, reflecting the inherent uncertainty and volatility in long-term currency predictions. CoinCodex provides a stark long-term view, predicting a significant decrease in the AUD/USD exchange rate over the next five years, indicating a -25.61% drop, showcasing the speculative nature of currency forecasts and the impact of evolving global economic conditions​.
