The yen advanced against the U.S. dollar. Investors are cautious now ahead of the Federal Reserve's decision, which will be announced on Thursday.
A survey by the Wall Street Journal showed that approximately 46% of the economists surveyed last week expect the Fed to raise rates in September. 35% of economists said the Fed would raise rates in December and 9.5% said they expect a liftoff in 2016. At the same time Barclays surveyed 700 investors last week and only 36% of the respondents believe that the central bank of the U.S. will raise rates in September.
The euro climbed slightly against the greenback, but it's likely to be range-bound ahead of Fed's decision. Market participants are also waiting for U.S. August inflation data, which will be released later today. If the data exceed forecasts investors might get more cautious.
The Australian dollar declined slightly amid leading index data from Westpac. Australia's leading economic index fell to -0.3% in August from 0 in July. Nevertheless the AUD managed to rebound amid gains in Asian stocks.
EUR/USD: the pair rose to $1.1300 in Asian trade
USD/JPY: the pair fell to Y120.15
GBP/USD: the pair traded within $1.5335-55
