It has been a very busy and wonderful two-week. After seeing off my families back to Malaysia, I am back to my trading desk. I hope to start some tradings soon.
It is very interesting to know how the retail business people from south east asia (particularly from Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore) view Australia dollar. They are bullish. For medium to long term , I guess. At the moment, in both Malaysia and Singapore, most probably you can’t buy Australian dollar from retail money changer on the spot. Instead, you’ve to pre-order, and collect it later. People are rushing to buy the Aussie. Supply is short. In fact, my sister was not able to find any Aussie dollar prior coming to Melbourne. This is interesting, isn’t it?
Of course, this is not enough to create a bullish view of Aussie dollar just yet. In fact, it shows that most of retail traders/investors might still live in the old Aussie dream. This is not a simple correction, this is a pretty serious damage of Australian dollar trend. It might take awhile before their ‘investment’ takes off again. Let’s see how it goes.
