Asian session: The euro’s volatility against the dollar

02:00 China Trade Balance, bln April -0.9 15.5 18.2

The euro's volatility against the dollar was near the lowest in almost four months as investors weighed prospects for additional monetary stimulus by the European Central Bank and receding credit risk in the region.

ECB President Mario Draghi said this week that policy makers had an "open mind" on a negative deposit rate. The extra yield investors demand to hold 10-year Spanish bonds over same maturity German debt narrowed to the least since August 2011 yesterday. Demand for the euro was limited ahead of data forecast to show German industrial production shrank in March from the previous month. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg before the figures due today predict a 0.1 percent contraction, after a 0.5 percent expansion in February.

New Zealand's dollar sank to a five-week low after Reserve Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler said the central bank has sold the currency. Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Wheeler told parliament's finance and expenditure select committee in Wellington today that "there has been some intervention."

He said he reserves the right for further currency sales to damp gains in the kiwi. The local dollar has surged 45 percent against the greenback since the end of 2008, the biggest advance among over 150 currencies tracked by Bloomberg.

Australia's dollar trimmed losses after Chinese data showed imports grew more than economists estimated. In China, imports rose 16.8 percent in April from the prior month, the customs administration said today in Beijing. That was more than the 13 percent increase expected by economists in a Bloomberg News survey. Exports grew 14.7 percent last month from March. China is the biggest trading partner for both Australia and New Zealand.
