Australian Dollar Gains on Hopes for US-China Trade Deal

As for Australia’s macroeconomic data, it was mixed today, with the housing market recovering but retail sales missing expectations.

Australian Dollar Holds Ground Despite Negative Fundamentals

The week started seemingly bad for the Australian dollar as fundamentals looked rather unfavorable to the currency.
