Despite a larger number of employed, the unemployment rate in Australia in July grew from 6.1% to 6.3%.
The AUD/JPY pair is supported by the difference in interest rates in Japan (0.1%) and Australia (2%), and extra-soft monetary policy by the Bank of Japan.
The pressure on the pair comes from low inflation in Australia, falling commodities prices, economic slowdown and the stock market crisis in China.
On Friday, the Bank of Japan Monetary Policy Statement and the Governor Kuroda Speech are due, at 6 am (GMT +3). However, the key event of the week that needs to be watched is the release on NFPR in the US at 3:30 pm (GMT +3). The publication would allow seeing the prospects of the interest rate hike in the US in September.
