RBA MONETARY POLICY DECISION HIGHLIGHTS - GBPAUD AUSSIE

FX:GBPAUD   British Pound/Australian Dollar
As expected the RBA deciced to keep the OCR unchanged at 150bps. 30D Aussie bank bills             implied only a 2% chance of a cut, down from the 10% we saw several weeks ago. There were few hints as to further policy, and it certainly feels as if the calls/ rhetoric for further cuts has been dampened in recent meetings following the august reduction. As well as in recent weeks, sentiment from the insto/ macro community has also shifted towards 2017 cuts vs 2016 which was previously a consensus view.

I remain bearish on aussie crosses, as I expect another leg lower towards 1.00 for audnzd             which should maintain aussie supply across currencies as I expect kiwi to be picked up a the headline G10 yield ccy. The fundamentals (inflation, growth, employment, housing) of aussie and kiwi remain very similar, but the rate differential is 25-50bps in NZDs favour thus imo its difficult to justify audnzd             being worth less than parity. up here at 1.05 thus the leg lower towards 1.00 (my 1-2yr average ) would realise firm cross market aussie supply.

Short aussie positioning should be taken once AUDNZD             has confirmed the leg lower (e.g. this topside correction fades with some daily closes lower/ downside structure forms in lower lows/ lower highs on meaningful timeframe(s). My preferred cross is GBPAUD             longs as i have discussed before I feel STG             is heavily undervalued in the medium term - though this renewed brexit selling needs to be watched in the immediate term (which works nicely to give time for AUDNZD             to restart on the offer). GBPAUD             has structure right until 1.40 2013 lows so there is plenty of room for further GBP selling until this trade moves into uncharted territories (unlike GBPNZD             which has just cracked all time lows). USD longs are on the risky side going into election & with the finger less fed.
