Today the National Australia Bank said that the Australian dollar’s value against the greenback does not yet fully reflect the extent of the rise in US yields.

Ray Attrill, head of currency strategy at NAB observed: “The Fed’s return to the (early stages) of policy normalcy in itself justifies an AUD/USD in the low $0.80s”.
The bank has lowered its previously forecasts for the Aussie which showed $0.93 and $0.87 respectively until the end of 2013 and 2014 and predicted that the Australian currency will trade at $0.88 against its US counterpart by the end of this year and at $0.83 by the end of 2014.
