Aussie Weakens on Poor China’s Data, Market Sentiment

The Australian dollar was soft today as the market sentiment remained negative following yesterday’s news about an attack on oil tankers in Middle East. Mixed macroeconomic data in China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, added to downside pressure on the currency. While some of the indicators were good, the arguably more important ones were surprisingly bad, suggesting that the Chinese economy struggles to maintain its impressive growth.

Australian Dollar Weak After Release of Employment Data

Australian Dollar Remains Soft After Domestic, China’s Data

The Australian dollar continued to demonstrate weakness as risk appetite was slowly coming off markets. Domestic macroeconomic data was weighing on the currency further as the consumer sentiment deteriorated sharply. And while China’s consumer inflation was accelerating, painting a positive picture of the economic health of Australia’s biggest trading partner, that led to concerns that Beijing may withdraw stimulus if prices continue to rise at a fast pace.

Aussie Falls Despite Positive Market Sentiment, Domestic Data Doesn’t Help

The Australian dollar remained soft today, extending yesterday’s decline against many rivals.

The US dollar ended the past trading week as the weakest currency on the Forex market. Prospects for an interest rate cut from the Federal Reserve was one of the main themes for talks among investors lately. But the latest developments in the trade war saga may change things.

Aussie Mixed After Poor Domestic Macroeconomic Data

The Australian dollar was mixed today, falling against some currencies, staying flat against others, but also managing to gain on the Swiss franc. Domestic macroeconomic reports released over the trading session were detrimental to the currency.

AUD/USD Might Prepare for a New Descent

The Australian dollar versus the US dollar is just in the right spot for the bears to begin a new descent.

Aussie Soft due to Risk Aversion, Chinese Data

As many other currencies, the Australian dollar was soft today due to risk aversion caused by escalating US trade wars. Poor China’s macroeconomic data was not helping to improve the traders’ mood either.

Aussie Rallies Despite Poor Domestic Data, Unable to Keep Gains

The Australian dollar rallied today despite extremely poor domestic macroeconomic data. The possible reason for that was the fact that the market sentiment stabilized as traders priced in the trade war between the United States and China. Yet the currency was unable to hold onto gains and is currently trading below the opening level.
