The fall in the commodity prices hits the Australian economy very badly in the recent years. The Australian economy used to be called as luck country, there are many natural resources such as coal, iron ore, and gold. After the commodities super cycle the iron ore and coal prices have been falling sharply. Recently, gold prices added some more pressure to the AUD.
Goldman Sachs expects that iron ore prices will continue falling until the second quarter of 2016.
The pressure from the nuclear deal makes the oil prices move lower. The lower oil prices directly effect the Canadian economy.
