AUD/USD: Where Will the Pair Be in 2023 and Beyond?
aud.png

The Australian dollar/US dollar pair is one of the major pairs traded worldwide. Since 2021, it has been moving in a downtrend. However, the reopening of China, the removal of China’s ban on Australian coal, and the potential weakness of the USD in 2023 allow analysts to make optimistic projections on the AUD/USD exchange rate. In this FXOpen guide, you will find forecasts on the AUD/USD rate and learn the reasons behind them.

AUD/USD: Price History 2021 - the Beginning of 2023

From March 2020 to February 2021, the AUD/USD pair was moving in an uptrend. However, the situation changed in May 2021 when a downtrend came into force as the US dollar was gaining momentum. The pair continues depreciating, and there are a few reasons for this.

The first reason is the problems with exports. It’s also vital to note that the strength of the Australian economy depends on exports. The country is a leader in producing and exporting various commodities, including iron ore, coal, lithium, gold, uranium, and bauxite. China is one of the major importers of Australian goods.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, China had to close the country, which affected its economic growth and curbed domestic steel production. A slowdown in its economic growth affected Australia’s economic development, too.

Another reason for the weakness of the Australian dollar was the strength of the US dollar. Despite the 2022 crisis, the US dollar was rising in value. Some analysts explain this by saying that the USD is a safe-haven asset that appreciates in periods of market turbulence. Others doubt the USD’s status as a refuge currency but agree that the Federal Reserve’s (the Fed) monetary policy is the primary driver of the USD rate.

The Fed's hawkish monetary policy encouraged the appreciation of the US dollar– in 2022, the central bank raised the interest rate seven times – from 0.25% to 4.50%. However, it’s vital to highlight that the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) also raised its interest rate even more often than the Fed. During 2022, there were eight rate hikes, so the rate reached 3.10%. Why was the AUD weaker than the US dollar? Despite the smaller number of hikes, the interest rate in the US is higher than in Australia.

Analysts say that the Australian dollar will appreciate only if the pace of the US dollar’s strengthening calms down. This may happen in the near future as the Fed is expected to soften its monetary policy, raising rates at a slower pace. Still, not all analysts agree with that. The Federal Reserve can’t beat the rising inflation rate. Therefore, it may maintain its aggressive approach, and the AUD/USD pair will continue moving in a downtrend.

NASDAQ feels the effect of Silicon Valley Bank collapse
img-009.png

It was inevitable that a large, previously highly capitalised bank which is one of the preferred depositories of capital for venture capital-funded technology companies in the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay area, would create major waves within the wider financial markets economy if it collapsed.

Well, collapse it has, and the fallout is immense.

Silicon Valley Bank, which was founded 39 years ago at the height of the global technology revolution, has gone under, with losses estimated at over $15 billion, and now the fingers of blame are being pointed as the bank's collapse serves to echo the banking crisis of 2008/2009 after which many observers and government regulators cited lack of prudent governance, carefree risk management and lending to those who cannot afford repayments to have been factors.

So grave was it, that the US and European governments embarked on a whole new set of regulations in order to prevent financial institutions from engaging in gung-ho corporate policy and in favour of protecting the public and business community from being subjected to losses should banks fail.

However, here we are in 2023 and we are witnessing the second largest collapse of a bank in the history of the United States economy.

Once again, factors contributing to the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank include poor risk management and a bank run driven by tech industry investors.

The failure of SVB was the largest of any bank since the 2007–2008 financial crisis by assets, and the second largest in U.S. history behind that of Washington Mutual which went bankrupt in 2008.

Many high tech firms which had raised venture capital to fund their growth had deposited the venture capital in large sums into accounts at Silicon Valley Bank, and the bank had experienced such an influx of funds in the first part of this decade that it was unable to lend responsibly so took on government bonds, which were long term in their investment structure, and had done so during a period of low interest rates.

Now the piper has to be paid, and the liabilities were too high.

As a result, shareholder confidence in publicly listed stocks on the tech-friendly NASDAQ exchange have taken a downturn.

At close of business on Friday, the NASDAQ Composite index had declined by over 5% during the course of last week, with losses gaining ground after the announcement of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.

This high profile and scandalous collapse of a major financial institution which has many Silicon Valley tech firms as customers has added a new dent to the performance of US tech stocks, which have been volatile for some time now.

Over the course of 2022, US tech stocks were very low compared to the previous year, and older style, traditional companies were doing well, and still are – such as those listed on London’s FTSE 100 index.

Overall, the venture-capital funded tech scene is seen as avantgarde but risky compared to the old money which exists on traditional exchanges.

It is just that now, we are seeing the market treat it as such.

Turkish Lira crisis lingers with sustained record low against USD
lira.png

The Turkish economy is a highly diversified one.

Its industry base is by far the most developed in the  Middle East, almost resembling European nations with its highly advanced telecommunications, tourism, vehicle manufacturing, computer science, fintech, clothing and consumer white goods sectors.

It’s an industrious society and has been improving tremendously over the years in its modernity.

The main obstacle faced by Turkish businesses and households in recent times has been directly connected to the country’s clearly diversified but somehow troubled economy.

Over the past two days, the Turkish Lira has plummeted even further to the extent that it is now at an all-time low against the US Dollar and other major currencies.

Today, the Turkish Lira is trading at 18.97 against the US Dollar, a value far lower than any time in history.

Presidential and parliamentary elections scheduled for May 14 are adding to uncertainty, although they are still some two months away. Overall, there is a concern over the possible continuation of current President Tayyip Erdogan's controversial policies which have led to a rapidly depreciating currency and an eye-watering 70% inflation figure, or if monetary policy could perhaps revert to orthodoxy as promised by the opposition should the opposition become elected.

Added to the long-existing fiscal malaise in Turkey, global economists are now looking at the economic impact of the disastrous earthquakes that hit Turkey last month.

The depreciation to new record lows has occurred despite the recent deposit of $5 billion into the Turkish central bank by the Saudi Fund for Development, which was cited at the time to be "a demonstration of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s commitment to supporting Turkey’s efforts to strengthen its economy’.

Rather astonishingly, The Turkish Lira has depreciated over the past five years against the British Pound by a staggering 300%, demonstrating that its instability has dented the Turkish economy, but has encouraged British tourists to visit the country even more than they already do - and Turkey is one of the most popular vacation destinations for British tourists.

Also, on the subject of tourism, Turkey has welcomed tens of thousands of tourists from Russia over the past year, as its neutrality has been a boon for business.

Whilst it is good that the tourist industry is booming, the depreciation of revenues from tourist business remains a hard metric to swallow in that 70% inflation has done a lot to wipe out a large proportion of revenue.

Turkey's workforce continues to be industrious and is not showing signs of giving up, so it is an economic region to watch closely.

Swiss tsunami rips through global markets: FTSE 100 wipeout noticeable
ftse100.png

Last week’s revelations that Credit Suisse, the second largest bank in Switzerland which is also a global market-maker at Tier 1 interbank level, has got into financial dire straits has had more than an effect on the local banking sector.

As is to be expected, the demise of such as key financial institution has had a major impact on many other markets internationally, one of which is the FTSE 100 index in London.

By Thursday last week, just days after the possibility of a total demise of Credit Suisse had become a real concern, £76 billion was wiped off the value of the index which contains London’s top 100 stock in blue-chip companies.

Over the past five days, the FTSE 100 index has lost 5.8% in value, and is now at its lowest point in over a month, down some 9.8% over the past 30 days.

This morning, as the markets open in London for the first time this week, it was clear that the collapse of Credit Suisse has taken its toll across a whole range of asset classes and company stocks.

One of the reasons for a further tumble in value this morning is that a possible deal between UBS, another Swiss banking giant, and Credit Suisse has not been successful, meaning that even for $1, Credit Suisse was unsaleable.

Bank stocks across the world have depreciated due to the collapse of yet another Tier 1 bank, which has gone the same way as many banks over the past 15 years despite all of the regulatory overhauls and possible lessons learned from the 2008/2009 financial crisis in which a whole host of large commercial banks in Europe and North America collapsed, with some disappearing forever after hundreds of years in business, and some being nationalised at the expense of the taxpayer.

Confidence, therefore is low and added to that are fall-out factors such as the total write-off of US$17 billion worth of Credit Suisse bonds as part of the proposed UBS deal sparked concern about similar debt and sent banking shares down further.

Lloyds Banking Group PLC, HSBC, Standard Chartered and NatWest shares dropped in value by 3.3%. 2.8%, 7.2% and 3.3% respectively and the FTSE 100 is now languishing at 7.335.

It certainly appears that the 8,000 points that analysts were looking at a few weeks ago is now an unfulfilled and distant memory.

British Pound reaches one-month high against US Dollar despite banking crisis
img-009.png

There has been so much focus on the shock waves that have been sent through the global markets this week as a result of what has now become viewed as a ‘banking crisis’ that only a downward direction in value for stocks and currencies has been considered.

Credit Suisse, the second largest Swiss bank, and one of the world’s largest Tier 1 interbank Forex dealers has collapsed after a few years of serious financial problems and ill-judged decisions such as the 2021 revelation that the bank had helped Bill Hwang, a trader whose activities got him banned in Hong Kong, move his activities to New York and rebrand his high risk hedge fund as Archegos before beginning down the same path that got him banned in New York, costing Credit Suisse $5.5 billion.

There have been other such disasters too, and some loss-making years over the course of the past decade but it is clear that now we are witnessing the end of Credit Suisse in its current form, and even UBS pulled out of a deal to buy it for $1.

The havoc that this has wreaked, including a lack of trust in banks once again – memories are not so short as to forget the credit crunch and banking collapses of the late 2000s, where many banks were either bankrupt after hundreds of years in business, or bailed out by the taxpayers and nationalised – is now noticeable on European stock exchanges as bank stocks have dived, and in currency prices.

However, it is important to note that it is not just the European side of the Atlantic that has been subjected to high value, high profile banking collapses over the past week.

Silicon Valley Bank in the United States collapsed last week, causing a ripple effect which meant that regional banks, of which there are a lot in the United States, lost a lot of value. One particular bank, First Republic, had lost 61% of its stock value by March 13.

Therefore, if malaise is on both sides of the pond, what can traders and investors do, other than pick up the pieces and try to continue their business.

As a result, the British market is resuming its pace, with the British Pound this morning trading at the high 1.22 range against the US Dollar, representing the highest point in over a month.

This is an interesting situation given that the FTSE 100 index lost over £76 billion in value due to the Credit Suisse debacle causing fear among investors and impacting bank stocks, many of which are listed on the London Stock Exchange and included in the FTSE 100 index.

It appears that the overall sentiment is to pick up the pieces and carry on, with an understanding that the banking trepidation is no better on the North American side of the Altantic, and as a result, it’s a good day for the British Pound.

Creating a new PoS blockchain with Geth (go-ethereum) is a relatively simple process. First, you will need to install Geth and create a new account. Once the account is created, you will need to initialize the blockchain with a genesis block. This will include setting the consensus algorithm to PoS and specifying the parameters for the network. After the genesis block is created, you will need to start the network by running Geth with the appropriate flags. Finally, you must create validators and miners to begin mining and validating blocks.

To hike or not to hike? That is the Fed’s question
fed.png

Today, futures contracts which are related to North American stocks have taken a bit of a downturn in projected value as today is another day in which the United States Federal Reserve Bank – known as The Fed – is set to announce its position on interest rate adjustments.

In advance of the opening session in New York today, futures contracts which related to stocks listed on the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 29 points which equates to a 0.1% drop, S&P 500 futures were down 0.1%, while Nasdaq-100 futures dipped 0.2%.

The Federal Reserve Bank has been holding a policy meeting which has taken place over the past two days, with the final day being today and investors and traders are awaiting the outcome, which may reveal a further increase in the base rate of interest across the United States.

Speculators and analysts have been looking at the possibility of the Federal Reserve implementing a 25 base point increase in the base rate of interest, as well as a possibility of tightening of monetary policy especially given the recent contagion across the United States banking sector in the aftermath of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank.

During the past few days, smaller regional banks have been affected and now First Republic is teetering on the brink of collapse resulting in a 61% drop in share price last week and a bank run which meant that many investors withdrew their money, subsequently depositing it with larger Tier 1 banks.

Rather incredibly, a batch of larger banks this week took their customers funds to the tune of $30 billion and deposited it in First Republic to prop it up.

As a result of this turn of events, confidence in the US banking sector is very low once again, and futures contracts on major indices are showing the bearish approach many investors are taking at a time when banks are struggling, and interest rates may rise again.

Fascinatingly, these stocks, usually traded by conservative investors due to their relative stability and long-standing presence on major exchanges are down, and the overall sentiment within the banking and US monetary situation is cautious to say the least, yet a meme stock that was responsible for the infamous market short in January 2021 is soaring.

GameStop, the entertainment firm which appeared in high profile news reports two years ago because of the reddit group WallStreetBets effectively ‘market making’ on social media and shorting the stock, causing a black swan event, is on the up.

The company, listed on the NASDAQ exchange, reported a 22.4% growth in margins and as a result, its stock soared by 43%.

It is an interesting day, when the banks, some of which are hundreds of years old, are causing more fear than a meme stock!
