Chinese Yuan Weakens Despite Slight Improvement in Data

The Chinese yuan is weakening to start the trading week, despite a slight improvement in economic data. The yuan, which has been battered against most currency rivals, has slipped way beyond the 7 threshold, leaving analysts wondering if this is the point of no return between the greenback and the yuan. The only way the market will find out is next month in Washington.

Chinese Yuan Surges Despite Data Falling Short of Expectations

The Chinese yuan is strengthening against major currency rivals to kick off the trading week, despite recent economic data falling short of expectations. Investors seem to be more bullish on US-China trade optimism, partially ignoring the latest industrial and retail sales numbers.

Chinese Yuan Mixed on Weaker Industrial Output, Surging Home Prices

The Chinese yuan is having a mixed trading session against multiple currencies, driven by varied economic data. The biggest story for China was its July industrial production being worse than what the market had expected, though it was somewhat offset by soaring housing prices in the world’s second-largest economy. The yuan may not be able to strengthen against a basket of currencies until the trade war is finally over.

NZ Dollar Retreats After Chinese Indicators Miss Expectations

The New Zealand dollar declined today following yesterday’s gains. While the positive news about the US-China trade conflict supported riskier commodity currencies yesterday, a big miss in some important Chinese macroeconomic indicators overshadowed the supportive fundamentals today.

Aussie Dragged Down by Fundamentals, Attempts to Recover

The Australian dollar fell today, dragged down by a range of fundamentals, including risk aversion and prospects for additional monetary easing. Macroeconomic data in China, Australia’s biggest trading partner, was mixed, giving no support to the Aussie. But the Australian currency was attempting to recover, and it even managed to gain on some of its rivals, including the US dollar.

Chinese Yuan Tries to Find Direction on Slowing GDP, Strong Data

The Chinese yuan is struggling to find direction to kick off the trading week after economic growth slowed to its lowest level in nearly three decades. But it was not all bad news for the world’s second-largest economy as an influx of data came in better than expected, giving the yuan some support.

Aussie Firm Despite Domestic & China’s Data

The Australian dollar was firm today despite poor macroeconomic data, both domestic and in China, Australia’s biggest trading partner. The possible reason for the rally was profit-taking after yesterday’s huge slump. The currency fell against some rivals intraday but has erased losses against all of them by now.

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.

Chinese Yuan Suffers from Poor Data, Sino-US Trade Quarrel

The Chinese yuan declined against the US dollar today after almost all Chinese macroeconomic indicators released today missed expectations. The developments in the US-China trade negotiations were not good for the currency as well.

Australian Dollar Mixed After Positive China’s GDP

The Australian dollar was mixed on Wednesday. The currency was flat against such rivals as the US dollar and the Japanese yen after swinging back and forth between gains and losses, fell versus the euro, but gained on the Swiss franc.
