Australia posted CPI figures for the third quarter with a 0.6% leapt on quarter, which is below the 0.8% ascend expected as well as 1.8% soar on year. That’s below the 2.0% tempo observed.

Tracking the greenback’s value against a trade-weighted basket of six rivals, the US dollar index added just 0.01% sticking to 93.84.
