The U.S. dollar advanced against major currencies. The greenback is supported by Fed officials' comments made at the Jackson Hole symposium at the end of the week. Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said that the case for a rate increase in September is not clear. He said that the central bank is on track to raise rates, but he noted he wasn't sure that September is the right time to act.

The Australian dollar declined against the U.S. dollar amid TD Securities inflation data. The corresponding consumer price index fell to 0.1% in August from 0.2% reported previously. The index came in at 1.7% y/y compared to 1.6% y/y in July. Official data are published once per quarter, that's why data by TD Securities are very important.

The New Zealand dollar fell against the greenback amid weak statistics. The ANZ business confidence index fell to a six-year low of -29.1 in August. In the previous month the index stood at -15.3. ANZ also warned investors that the pace of declines in the economy picked up.

Declines in Asian stocks boosted demand for the yen, thus allowing this currency to strengthen against the dollar. Meanwhile Japanese industrial production fell 0.6% in July missing expectations for a 0.1% reading. On an annualized basis it dropped to 0.2% from 2.3%.

EUR/USD: the pair rose above $1.1250 in Asian trade

USD/JPY: the pair fell to Y120.85

GBP/USD: the pair rose to $1.5435
