Australian and New Zealand dollars have a bad start to the week

By Ricky Bean September 30th, 2014

  • The Australian dollar had a poor start to the week, hitting eight-month lows against its US counterpart on Monday. Data showing that the US economy grew at its quickest pace for two-and-a-half years was the overriding reason for the greenback holding firm. The Aussie dollar dropped 0.59% to 0.8684, its lowest point against its US counterpart since January.
  • Monday also saw the New Zealand dollar have a disastrous start to the week as it slumped to one-year lows. Like its Australian counterpart it struggled to hold firm against the US dollar following the release of a better-than-expected report on US economic growth.
