How does the Australian dollar trade against the US dollar historically?
The US dollar has been predominantly stronger than the Australian dollar, with the exception of two years within the past decade. So far this year, the exchange rate has hovered between 1.3421 and 1.3061 US dollars against the Australian dollar.
In 2011 to 2012, the Aussie dollar was stronger than the US buck. Analysts speculate this was a result of Australia’s significant increase in the inflation rate increase during that time. Many projected that Australia’s interest rates would increase, driving an increase in the Australian dollar as a result. However, based on exchange rates for this currency pair in the following years, the projection was short-lived: The US dollar crept back up as the dominant currency.

How much is traded between these currencies?
About 5.1 trillion US dollars are traded in foreign exchange markets daily, according to the Bank for International Settlements’ 2016 Triennial Central Bank Survey. The US dollar accounts for 88% of this daily foreign exchange trading, while the AUD accounts for 7% of it.
Despite this large gap, the Aussie dollar is still one of the top five currencies traded in foreign exchange markets, with an average of $348 billion in trading daily.
Experts speculate that the USD/AUD combination remains a common foreign exchange currency pair due to the volatility of the Aussie dollar. Since the value of this currency fluctuates often, there is opportunity for competitive exchange rates on both sides.
