Pound To Australian Dollar Exchange Rate Forecast: GBP/AUD Tilts Lower To  Test 1.77

Australian Dollar to Find Support on Dips

The Australian Dollar goes from strength to strength as firmer commodity prices underpins. This has somewhat shielded the currency from the recent geopolitical tensions and the increased hawkishness from the Federal Reserve. What’s more, with Australia experiencing a strong balance of payment position, supported by record trade surpluses, this further adds to support for the currency. As such, the outlook for the Aussie remains bullish where dips will likely to find support. This will be particularly the case given that the RBA appears to be further behind the curve on the inflation front relative to its counterparts. With the AUDUSD breaking above the 0.7500 handle, eyes are geared towards a test of 0.7800 in the medium term.

IG Client Sentiment: AUD/USD

Data shows 35.59% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders short to long at 1.81 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 0.72% higher than yesterday and 15.99% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.35% higher than yesterday and 23.90% higher from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-short suggests AUD/USD prices may continue to rise.

Traders are further net-short than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger AUD/USD-bullish contrarian trading bias.

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
