Aussie dollar gets destroyed after RBA cuts rates


The Reserve Bank of Australia just announced a 25 basis point interest rate cut and now the Aussie dollar is getting destroyed.


On Monday night, the RBA announced it would takes its main interest rate to 2.25% from 2.50%.

In its announcement, the RBA said, "The Australian dollar has declined noticeably against a rising US dollar over recent months, though less so against a basket of currencies. It remains above most estimates of its fundamental value, particularly given the significant declines in key commodity prices. A lower exchange rate is likely to be needed to achieve balanced growth in the economy."

Here's the chart of the Aussie getting clobbered against the US dollar.
