Often local, council-funded community centres operate as a hub for recreation and sports, career services and places to host important community events. Historically, these resources have been vital to the strength of many communities especially in less flourishing areas of London.

The Indian rupee has been the worst-performing Asian currency over the past month. This last Tuesday the USD:INR rate reached 58.985 — an all-time high! This latest upswing in the USD:INR rate begun last month near 54.00 and was fueled by a combination of domestic and international factors (see below).  The all-time high rate prompted an unexpected appearance in the market by the Indian government.

The Australian dollar has been caught in a tight trading range ($1.02-$1.06) for the past nine months, and appears to be going nowhere fast!  The buying forces of offshore money - from both global investors in search of yield and speculators riding the momentum and "carry" trades - have been neatly balanced by the selling forces of Australia's weakening terms of trade*, falling commodity prices being the chief culprit. Of course, the biggest risk for Australia's economy and demand for its currency is China, it's primary trading partner - and China's economy is slowing! Our analysis below tries to cover the relevant factors in determining what's next in store for the Aussie.
