Dollar to stay strong

By webmaster 06 January 2011 | 1 minute read

The Australian dollar is expected to hover around parity with the greenback for the next few months.

Growth in China continues to drive demand for commodities, which is helping to keep the Australian dollar strong against its US counterpart.

National Australia Bank's chief market economist Rob Henderson says with the US dollar unlikely to rally significantly in the near future, the local currency should remain at historically high levels.

Mr Henderson said he expects the Australian dollar to peak at $US1.05 as the official cash rate continues to climb.
