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!

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.

This means that there are currently no pending landmark decisions which could derail the ECB’s efforts to reduce the yields demanded for the government bonds of Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy.
