Will the RBA send the Aussie back to parity?

We are in the very early stages of what could be an aggressive period of monetary policy tightening, a currency drawcard that might even see the Australian dollar have another crack at US dollar parity.

The recent run higher in the Aussie dollar has many wondering where the rally might end. Most predictions (and I agree it’s still likely) are for a lower currency, putting it somewhere between 80 and 85 US cents over the next 12-to-18 months. But it is also widely expected interest rates are on the way up over this period. We could in fact see the RBA begin to talk this way in coming days.
