Australian Dollar Weak After Trade Balance Shrinks

The Australian dollar was weak today, falling against almost all other most-traded currencies. Some market analysts blamed the decline on the disappointing trade data released in Australia during the trading session, while others thought that it might be just a corrective sell-off after the incredibly good performance last month.

Australian Dollar Strongest amid Positive Market Sentiment

The Australian dollar rose against a basket of most-traded currencies, including the New Zealand dollar, which itself was very strong. The likely reason for the Aussie’s strong performance was the positive market sentiment caused by a rally of US and European stocks. Domestic macroeconomic data was also helpful to the currency, while disappointing data from China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, did not have a material impact on the Australian currency.

Australian Dollar Strongest amid Risk Appetite, Traders Wait for NFP

The Australian dollar was the strongest currency on the Forex market today, rising to multi-month highs, amid risk appetite that returned to markets.

Australian Dollar Retreats After Economy Contracts, Ending Almost 30-Year Expansion

The Australian dollar was rising at the start of today’s trading session, reaching multi-month highs, but has retreated after the release of Australian gross domestic product for the first quarter of this year. The report revealed that the Australian economy contracted, ending its record almost 30-year period of growth.

Australian Dollar Strongest After Australian & Chinese Trade Data

The Australian dollar rallied against all other most-traded currencies today after positive trade data released in China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, and Australia itself. Reports about the services sector were rather bad in both Australia and China but that did not prevent the Aussie from logging substantial gains.

Australian Dollar Edges Higher After Positive Retail Sales

The Australian dollar rose a bit today following the release of a better-than-expected retail sales report. Gains were limited, though, as the market sentiment was mixed, failing to help the currency in finding direction.

Australian Dollar Weakest After Manufacturing PMI Logs Record Drop

Australian Dollar Soft on Market Sentiment, Weak Economic Data

The Australian dollar was soft today. While it managed to gain on the US and Canadian dollars, the Aussie fell against other most-traded currencies. It declined even against its New Zealand counterpart, which is also considered riskier commodity currency. The market sentiment remained in a risk-off mode, weighing on Australian currency, and Australia’s macroeconomic releases were not helping either.

Australian Dollar Rises for Third Day After GDP Beats Expectations

The Australian dollar continued to rise, logging a third consecutive daily gain. This time, it is easier to explain the currency’s rally as it followed the better-than-expected GDP print released during the trading session. Economic data from China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, was atrocious, but it had a little impact on the movement of the Aussie.
