The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies. The greenback remained supported by yesterday's better-than-expected U.S. consumer price inflation. The U.S. consumer price inflation rose 0.1% in September, exceeding expectations for a flat reading, after a 0.2% decrease in August.
The New Zealand dollar dropped against the U.S. dollar after the consumer price inflation from New Zealand. New Zealand's consumer price inflation climbed 0.3% in the third quarter, missing expectations for a 0.5% rise, after a 0.3% gain in the second quarter.
On a yearly basis, the consumer price index in New Zealand rose 1.0% in the third quarter, after a 1.6% increase in the second quarter.
That could mean that the Reserve Bank of New Zealand may delay its interest rate hike.
The Australian dollar traded slightly lower against the U.S. dollar despite the better-than-expected preliminary Chinese HSBC manufacturing purchasing managers' index. China's HSBC manufacturing purchasing managers' index rose to 50.4 in October from 50.2 in September. Analysts had expected the index to remain unchanged at 50.2.
The National Bank of Australia's business confidence index remained unchanged at 6 points in the third quarter.
The Japanese yen traded mixed against the U.S. dollar. Japan's preliminary manufacturing purchasing managers' index increased to 52.8 in October from 51.7 in September, exceeding expectations for a rise to 52.1.
