Aussie Dollar - since early May we have been riding this short with a target of .85. After a wicked break today (-2%), we are in sight.

Copper, Ore, Fed, RBNZ, all weighing on the Aussie in last few days.

What happened?

Today's lynchpin was pulled when RBA Governor Glenn Stevens more or less told you they are interested in seeing the currency go lower. He also said "events elsewhere will have bearing on AUD level". Rates continue to be guided lower and the 3-6 month commodity price delayed impact on the Aussie ( FXA , quote ) economy is playing out.

Stevens went on to point out the obvious that a drop in resource investment also means things don't get better here anytime soon.
