Current trend

On Tuesday, the AUD significantly fell against the Yen after the publication of weak trade balance data from China as imports in September fell by 17.7%, against expected fall of 15%. This big reduction in imports to China means a large fall in commodities exports for the Australian economy.

The Yen, on the other hand, found support in the latest publication of the Bank of Japan Minutes. Despite forecasted deflation in the country, the regulator considers that a temporary situation and does not see a need of additional stimulus measures for the economy.
