Australian dollar gives up some early revenues after China GDP

On Monday, the Australian dollar gave up some early revenues as China’s GDP came in better than expected a for the first quarter and the greenback sagged on a trade-weighted basis as American Vice President Mike Pence headed to the ceasefire line on the Korean peninsula dubbed the de-militarized zone or DZB for short.

The currency pair AUD/USD hit at 0.7586, ascending 0.11% with markets in Australia unavailable for Easter Monday. The currency pair USD/JPY reached 108.26, slumping 0.36%.

The US dollar index, measuring the greenback’s actual value against a trade-weighted basket of six main currencies, tumbled 0.21%, showing 100.28, which is close to a five-month minimum.

The previous week, the vast majority of key markets were unavailable for Good Friday, with the major American currency up against a basket of key currencies on Thursday, thus mounting a revival from its tumble in the previous session and following Trump’s statement that the greenback was too strong, while mostly positive economic data drove market sentiment.
