Australian Dollar Trades Weakest on Monday

The Australian dollar was the weakest currency on the Forex market during the current trading session, falling against all other most-traded rivals. The most likely reason for that was the persisting fears of trade wars between the United States and their trading partners. Macroeconomic releases on the weekend and Monday were mixed, giving the currency no reason to go in one direction or the other.

Macroeconomic data in Australia and Australia’s biggest trading partner, China, hurt the Aussie as well.

Aussie Ignores Interest Rate Forecast As Threat of Trade Wars Wanes

Japanese Yen Drops as USA Make Concessions to China

The Japanese yen traded broadly lower today after the news that the United States made some concessions to China in the trade talks. Japan’s macroeconomic data was unable to support the currency.

Australian Dollar Tanks After Disappointing Retail Sales

The Australian dollar slumped against all major currencies today, falling to the lowest level since June 2017 against the US dollar, after nation’s retail sales unexpectedly halted growth in March. Rising imports in China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, did little to support the currency.
