The Aussie strengthened against sterling over the week. It was no major achievement: Every currency strengthened against sterling, which was dragged lower by the expectation of higher UK interest rates fading ever further into the future. 

The pound fell by an average of -1.1% against the other dozen most actively-traded currencies. It lost even more than that to the Australian dollar, declining by -1.6%.

A complete dearth of Australian economic data left the Aussie to profit from failures elsewhere. Disappointing figures from Britain and North America allowed it to pick up one US cent as well as the three and a half cents it took from sterling. It was steady against the NZ dollar. There are no important Australian ecostats scheduled for the week ahead either, but the Aussie is unlikely to prosper so handsomely in the holiday week.
