Aussie Drops as Domestic Data Outweighs China’s Report

Aussie Gains Ground on Business Investment Data

The Australian dollar is moving higher today, gaining almost across the board on the latest business investment data. The idea that, perhaps, the Australian economy doesn’t need to rely so heavily on China is helping boost sentiment toward the Aussie right now.

China’s Growth Loses Momentum, Yuan Slips

The Chinese yuan fell today, demonstrating the biggest drop since March, as the nation’s central bank set the daily fixing lowest since September due to concerns about slowing economic growth.

NZ Dollar Rallies, Struggles to Keep Gains

The New Zealand dollar gained today but had hard time keeping gains as macroeconomic reports from China, the biggest trading partner of the South Pacific nation, were somewhat disappointing.

Rand Reaches This Year’s Record, Being Top Performer

The South African rand climbed today, rising to the highest level this year, on speculations that the current ruling political party will remain in power, while positive economic news from China increased attractiveness of riskier currencies in general. The rand is the best performer against currencies of emerging economies.

Yen Profits from Its Role as Safe Investment

The Japanese yen climbed today as poor macroeconomic data from China and escalating tensions in Ukraine put the Forex market in the risk-off mode, which supported the currency in its role of a safe haven.
