Australian dollar edges up after NAB survey on business

Australian dollar edges up after NAB survey on business

On Tuesday, the Australian dollar managed to gain in Asia trade following a positive bank survey of business views, while regional data was focused exactly on July China trade.

The currency pair USD/JPY edged down 0.06% being worth 110.68. At the same time AUD/USD reached 0.7933, rising 0.25%.

China’s supposed to report that in July, the country’s exports headed north 10.9% year-on-year, descending from June’s 11.3% gain, while imports surged 16.6%, versus a 17.2% jump in the previous month.

Overnight, the greenback stood intact versus a basket of global counterparts, struggling to contribute to gains following Friday’s sturdy American jobs report, right after a top Fed official tried to cool rate lift hopes.

On the heels of its Friday’s greatest one-day gain of the year, the evergreen buck made a subdued start to the trading week because market participants waited for major inflation data this week. Meanwhile,  St. Louis Fed President James Bullard hinted that low interest rates will probably remain appropriate in the nearer future.
