The Australian dollar has continued to soar, hitting a new two-year high overnight, 73.75 US cents. The reason for that is that the U.S. dollar continues to retreat, as inflation is now being encouraged to rise to over 2%, while interest rates are likely to remain at record lows for some time. Overnight, U.S. indices closed mixed, with the top 30 stocks, the Dow Jones falling 0.8%. The Nasdaq meanwhile gained 0.7%, supported by Apple shares rising 3.4%, and Amazon and Intel rising over 1% each.
The month of August marked great significance as both the broader S&P500 and Dow rose 7% – their best gain since the 1980’s. This came as the ASX200 closed higher for the 5th month, up 2.24% – the best return since 2009.
