Aussie goes down on weaker than anticipated China imports

On Friday, the Australian dollar went down after mixed China trade data as imports turned to be lower than anticipated and put pressure on the demand outlook from Australia's key trade partner.

The currency pair AUD/USD went down 0.15% trading at 0.7880, USD/JPY dived 0.01% hitting 111.26.

As China informed, in December experts tacked on 10.9% versus a leapt of 9.1% observed, while imports demonstrated a 4.5% soar versus a 13.0% ascend anticipated. The trade balance reached $54.69 billion surplus versus $37 billion observed.

Measuring the greenback’s value against a basket of six key currencies, the US dollar index went down 0.11% being worth 91.56.

Overnight, the US currency headed south versus other currencies on Thursday following dismal American economic data.

The evergreen buck was affected after reports revealed that American producer prices suddenly dived in December, which is the first sag in nearly one-and-a-half years, while initial jobless claims suddenly tacked on the previous week.
