Today’s AUD/USD forecast is bullish. On Monday, the risk-sensitive Australian dollar surged to a two-week high before pulling back sharply.

The Assistant Governor of Australia’s central bank, Christopher Kent, stated that financial conditions would be one of several variables taken into consideration by the Board at its next policy meeting in April.

The central bank has stated that higher rates will likely be required to reduce inflation. However, markets are betting that the 10-month tightening campaign of the RBA is virtually over due to the constraints in global banking.

According to Kent, the global banking system is in better shape now than it was during the previous financial crises. In a previous address, Kent declared that the Australian banking sector was “unquestionably strong” and that its capital levels were significantly higher than required.

Since last May, the central bank has increased cash rates ten times, bringing them to a decade-high of 3.6%.

Kent acknowledged the strain on the international financial system but downplayed its effects on local banks.
