Aussie Trades Lower on Poor Data, Risk Aversion

The Australian dollar was trading generally lower today due to an unexpected drop of private capital expenditure last week. Released at the start of Thursday’s trading session, a report on construction work done showed a decline as well, but it was not as big as experts had feared. The Forex market was in a risk-off mode after US President Donald Trump officially supported Hong Kong protesters, and that also had a negative impact […]

Japanese Yen Weakens As Investors Easing BOJ to Prevent Recession

The Japanese yen is weakening midweek as new economic data is exacerbating recession fears.

Japanese Yen Reverses Losses in Second Half of Monday’s Session

The Japanese yen performed opposite to riskier currencies today, falling intraday but rebounding later. Whether it is due to US tariffs on Chinese goods kicking in or light volumes on markets due to holiday in the United States resulting in sharp and unpredictable swings, it looks like most currencies reversed their movement in the second half of the Monday’s session.

Australian Dollar Weakens on Poor Data, Rebounds Later

The Australian dollar was largely following the footsteps of its New Zealand counterpart today, falling initially during the Thursday’s session due to poor domestic data but rebounding later on the improving market sentiment before weakening yet again afterward.

Aussie Rallies Despite Poor Domestic Data, Unable to Keep Gains

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.

Poor Chinese Economic Data Overshadows Australian Reports, Dragging Aussie Down

The Australian dollar fell on Thursday and was one of the weakest currencies on the Forex market during the trading session. While domestic macroeconomic data was decent for the most part, poor reports from China and risk aversion on markets dragged the currency down.

Japanese Yen Gains on Majors Despite Positive Market Sentiment

While the Japanese yen was soft against commodity currencies today, it managed to gain on many other most-traded peers. That was surprising considering the risk-on market sentiment, which made safe currencies less attractive to traders.

Australian Dollar Mixed After Macroeconomic Data

The Australian dollar was mixed today, rising against some rivals and falling versus others. Macroeconomic data was mixed as well, giving the currency no clear direction.

Australian Dollar Extends Decline After Thursday’s Mixed Data
