The Aussie's drop isn't done yet

The Australian dollar has lost 30 per cent of its value in the past six months but even if the RBA doesn't cut today, the outlook for the currency remains bearish.

Last week was another grim week for the Australian dollar. The rumour mill ran amok with investors dumping the local unit on expectations of a deteriorating monetary policy outlook, sparking concern and leading markets to questions whether the currency can consolidate.

All eyes on the RBA

The Reserve Bank’s first rates decision after the January sojourn will be closely watched, and will likely send the Aussie tumbling further if the RBA cuts.
