Australian Dollar Rallies After Australia Gets New Prime Minister

General Sir John Monash on Australian 100-dollar billThe Australian dollar rallied today after the country’s political crisis was resolved for the time being as Australia got a new leader.

As was expected, Malcolm Turnbull did not last long as Prime Minister after winning a vote for staying in the seat just this Monday. By Friday, Treasurer Scott Morrison will replace him in the office, which was considered to be the most market-friendly outcome. That being said, analysts do not believe that the Aussie’s rally will be long-lasting as markets will likely turn their attention to the next year’s general election fairly quickly.

AUD/USD rose from 0.7241 to 0.7304 as of 11:35 GMT today. EUR/AUD fell from 1.5922 to 1.5862.
