The greenback traded stronger against its major peers after Friday’s weaker-than-expected U.S. job data which led to profit-taking after the U.S. dollar’s rally. Investors are awaiting important data later in the week (retail sales and consumer sentiment) to get further indications on the good economic outlook in the U.S.
The Australian dollar could not further recover from his four-year low from last Friday and is currently trading negative against the greenback. National Australia Bank's Business Confidence declined from 5 to 4 whereas the House Price Index showed gains of 1.5% giving slight support to the currency.
The Kiwi also lost again against the U.S. dollar. Investors are awaiting Reserve Bank governor Wheeler releasing the bank's half-yearly financial stability report today at 20:00 GMT and his statements over the strength of the currency.
The Japanese yen currently trading at USD115.37 further closes in on its new all time-low of USD115.51 after the BoJ’s economic stimulus from October 31st and the Nikkei’s rally fuelled by speculation that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe might postpone the planned sales tax increase and call a snap election.
