Making up 6.9% of the world's daily shares in 2016, the Australian dollar became the fifth-most-traded currency in the world foreign exchange markets.

The popular of the Australian dollar with currency traders derives from the countries high interest rates, freedom of the FX market from government interference, the stability of Australia's economy and political system, and the currencies diversification benefits among a portfolio containing the top world currencies, especially their exposure to Asian economies.

The Australian trade has depended on commodity exports such as minerals and agricultural products. Thus, the Australian dollar has been seasonal throughout the different business cycles of raw materials and dropping during recessions as mineral prices fall or when domestic spending surpasses the export earnings prospect.
