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.
