The U.S. dollar fluctuated with modest changes to the euro and the yen. It's worth to remember that concerns over China's economic growth triggered massive declines in stocks worldwide on Monday. This also made the greenback very volatile. Investors are still cautious about short-term outlook of the dollar. They are waiting for signs of stabilization in China and strong data on the U.S. economy, which would suggest that the Federal Reserve is still on track to raise rates in 2015.
At the beginning of today's session the Australian dollar declined against the U.S. dollar. However later economic data supported the AUD. The seasonally adjusted Construction Work Done index rose by 1.6% in the second quarter. Economists expected the index to rise by 1.5%.
The New Zealand dollar is under pressure. Statistics showed that the country's trade balance came in at -Nz649 in July missing expectations for -NZ600. The deficit expanded as imports continued rising. Exports of dairy products have picked up for the first time in nearly a year.
