Australian coins and banknotesThe Australian dollar went higher at the beginning of the trading week, but was unable to keep gains and went down as traders continued to wait of the minutes of the last central bank’s meeting.

The Reserve Bank of Australia will release the minutes of its August policy meeting tomorrow. The central bank signaled after cutting interest rates that it is not planning to continue rate cuts anymore. Market participants hope that the minutes will provide clearer picture of the RBA intentions.

The Aussie (as the Australian currency is nicknamed) was falling since April till August. The currency attempted to recover at the first half of August, but was consolidating since.
