NZ Dollar Reverses Earlier Losses amid Risk Aversion

The New Zealand dollar gained today after falling earlier due to mild risk aversion on the Forex market. Traders were nervous due to the threat of a hard Brexit as well as the impeachment of US President Donald Trump. There is no obvious reason why the New Zealand currency reversed its losses. Macroeconomic data released over the trading week did not paint a clear picture of the New Zealand economy as there were […]

Australian Dollar Surges Despite Wednesday’s Underwhelming Data

The Australian dollar surged against other most-traded currencies today. With Wednesday’s domestic macroeconomic data being negative, it is hard to tell what the reason for the sharp rally was. One of the possible factors boosting the Aussie were hopes for a delay of US tariffs on Chinese goods that should kick in on December 15.

Chinese Yuan Weakens As Trump Remarks Offset Manufacturing PMI

The Chinese yuan is tumbling on Tuesday after President Donald Trump told reporters that a trade agreement with China can wait. The remarks offset positive manufacturing data that showed the industry expanded for the first time in seven months. The yuan remains firmly entrenched in the 7 territory against the US dollar after appreciating on hopes of a trade agreement.

NZ Dollar Flat, Rebounding After Earlier Decline

The New Zealand dollar traded about flat against the majority of most-traded currencies today after falling earlier during the trading session. Domestic macroeconomic data released on Thursday was relatively positive but the market sentiment was unfavorable to riskier currencies.

Aussie Drops Despite Improving Business Confidence, Conditions

The Australian dollar fell against the vast majority of its most-traded rivals despite the fact that the business conditions and the business confidence improved last month.

Chinese Yuan Rebounds After Disappointing Data, Positive 2020 Outlook

The Chinese yuan is rebounding against multiple currency pairs on Tuesday, following an onslaught of disappointing economic data. The biggest driver of the yuan’s gains is President Donald Trump’s upcoming speech at the Economic Club of New York that is expected to announce delays to tariffs on automobiles, as well as hints on the current state of US-China trade negotiations.

Aussie Bounces Sharply After Unemployment Drops Unexpectedly

The Australian dollar climbed after the release of Australia’s employment data that showed an unexpected drop of the unemployment rate. The currency erased yesterday’s losses against most-traded rivals and managed to erase losses for the whole week versus the US dollar.

Australian Dollar Rises Despite Drop of Consumer Confidence to 4-Year Low, Escalating US-China Trade War

The Australian dollar rose today against other most-traded currencies. That is a surprising result considering that fundamentals looked very unfavorable to the currency. The sentiment of Australian consumers fell to the lowest level in four years. Washington announced fresh sanctions against Chinese companies just a day before trade negotiations between the United States and China resume.

NZ Dollar Drops, Touching 4-Year Low vs. US Dollar

The New Zealand dollar dropped today, touching the lowest level in four years versus its US counterpart. The currency was dragged down by poor domestic macroeconomic data and the general risk-off sentiment on the Forex market. A positive report about China’s manufacturing sector limited the downside momentum, though.

Australian Dollar Rises, Gains Limited

The Australian dollar rose today, though gains were limited. Macroeconomic data in Australia itself as well as in China, its biggest trading partner, was mixed, giving the currency no edge.
