04:30 Australia RBA Rate Statement

The Australian dollar declined against the U.S. dollar after the Reserve Bank of Australia announced that it had left its interest rate unchanged at 2%. The central bank aimed at stimulating activity in such spheres as retail sales and housing construction, which drove growth earlier. Meanwhile the RBA is concerned about the overheating housing market, which can lead to risky investments and undermine fragile recovery. The AUD was also influenced by data from its main trade partner China. The Federation of Logistics and Purchasing reported that China's manufacturing PMI fell to 49.7 in August from 50 in July, slipping below the 50 points threshold that separates expansion from contraction.

The yen rose against the dollar as declines in Asian stocks boosted demand for this safe-haven currency.

Earlier the euro declined against the greenback amid euro zone inflation data. Consumer prices rose by 0.2% in August, just like in July. Analysts expected price growth to slow down to 0.1%. Inflation growth has remained below 1% for 21 months. Prices of food, alcohol and tobacco rose 1.2% compared to +0.9% in July. Prices of services rose by 1.2%. Energy costs fell by 7.1%.

EUR/USD: the pair rose to $1.1275 in Asian trade
