Foreign exchange rates and the impact on Australian coal and iron ore exports

Report summary

In this insight we investigate the impact of further AUD:USD depreciation and what exchange rate would allow 95% of Australian coal producers to have positive margins all else being equal. We calculated that at a AUD:USD exchange rate of 0.83, 96% of Australian iron ore exporters are expected make positive margins, whereas only 80% of Australian coal exporters achieve the same.
