  • An Uneven Recovery From The Interest Rate Blues [View article]
    Been planning on purchase of Aussie dollars for late summer 2013. Generally not a market "timer" but your opinion valuable. Your feelings on late summer buy or do you suggest be patient since you expect Aussie to continue descent into 2014?
    Thanks in advance.

  • Australian Dollar Decline Set To Continue [View article]
    Esekla, great observation. Funny how many AUD "haters" exist.
    If the author is right (doubtful) I will be first in line to buy AUD at .90
    The Aussie is a contrarian dream. You have to look far and wide to find anyone who likes it.
    Of course China is going to slow down but somehow this is a shock to the so called experts. In time they will settle to a very healthy 3-4% growth.

  • A Mystifying Rate Cut By The Reserve Bank Of Australia [View article]
    Thank you Dr for being a great source for RBA analysis.
    The move by the RBA was certainly a surprise to me. Foreign investors like me who enjoyed 6.4% term deposits just two years ago will look long and hard at much lower rates that continue to evolve before moving additional funds to Australia.
    This move to me looks like an attempt to reduce the value of the AUD. As you pointed out the Swiss capitulated and as the saying goes if you can't beat them join them. The race to devalue is heating up and regrettably the RBA is the newest contestant.

  • A Stealth Rally For The Australian Dollar [View article]
    Finally someone notices AUD strength when compared to about every currency except the USD. Thanks Dr for your article.

  • It Only Takes 5 Million Dollars To Buy A Home [View article]
    I realize off subject but I have been looking forward to your thoughts on the RBA minutes earlier this week. The board seemed to make it painfully clear they will not hesitate to lower rates to historic levels. But your ability to read 'between the lines' is what I look forward to hearing. Your about the only person I know who does not dread the AUD, the most hated currency in the universe.

  • Today In Commodities: Recent Crude Highs Are Not Sustainable [View article]
    The Aussie is a contrarian dream. Last week the RBA and numerous writers in the Sydney Herald spent a great amount of energy trying to talk it down, emphasizing it was significantly over valued. On top of that every Seeking Alpha contributor I have come across says 'short', 'sell', etc. The most optimistic short to medium term forecast I have seen is parity. I have also seen 'experts' predicting .80 cents! Every one dislikes or hates the Aussie. Contrarians could not ask for a better investment.

  • Australian Dollar Confirms Stock Rally As It Re-Emerges As A Leading 'Risk-On' Currency [View article]
    The evolving 'risk-off' movement which seems to be engulfing a good portion of the global economy seems to support the Dr's not so optimistic outlook for the Aussie. I would be curious to know where the Dr thinks the AUD/USD relationship will reside a few months down the road or at what level his bearish bias would dissipate.

  • The Dollar's Tumble Accompanies A Host Of Critical Currency, Commodity Trades [View article]
    Dr Duru, assuming global growth, in particular China, continues to slow do you see the RBA eventually letting rates drift to near zero like the Fed, BOJ, BOE, and ECB? From my understanding its uncharted territory for the RBA and your opinion is valued. I am currently enjoying nice returns on Aussie term deposits but fear down the road if the above scenario unfolds they would have little choice but to offer rates around 1% like CD investors in the US are experiencing.
