00:30 Australia Home Loans November -0.3% Revised From 2.0% -0.5% 1.8%
The Australian dollar declined amid news from China. Today the yuan declined by 0.3% against the U.S. dollar outside mainland China. Now the offshore yuan is cheaper than the mainland. The gap continues to expand, that's why the People's Bank of China might take steps again. The Chinese currency weakened amid declines in the Shanghai Composite index.
Earlier the Australian dollar was supported by home loans data. Home loans rose by 1.8% in November compared to October on a seasonally adjusted basis. The value of loans to investors rose by 0.7%, marking the first increase in seven months. In October they declined a revised 5.8%.
The yen rose after Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said that the central bank was not considering further monetary policy easing. Kuroda reiterated that the price trend excluding temporary factors remained stable.
EUR/USD: the pair rose to $1.0890 in Asian trade
