The yen advanced amid correction of the dollar and gains in Japanese stocks. Yesterday the greenback's decline was caused by statistics from China and the U.S. China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing reported that the country'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 Institute for Supply management reported that U.S. manufacturing index came in at 51.1 in August compared to 52.7 in July, while economists had expected the index to slide only to 52.6.
The Australian dollar fell below $0.70 for a short while after release of Australian GDP data. A report showed that the country's GDP rose by 0.2% in the second quarter missing expectations for a 0.4% rise. In the first quarter the index came in at 0.9%. On an annualized basis GDP rose by 2.0%, while economists had expected a reading of +2.2%. Slower growth was caused by declines in mining and construction activity as well as by lower prices of export commodities.
