Economic calendar (GMT0):

Time/ Region/ Event/ Period/ Previous/ Forecast/ Actual

The yen and the euro rose against the U.S. dollar as investors continued revising forecasts for an increase in Federal Reserve's interest rates. The minutes of July meeting showed that the central bank had not come closer to a liftoff in rates, which was expected in September. Investors revised their expectations after China unexpectedly devalued the yuan harming risky assets including commodity currencies and currencies of developing countries. This move intensified concerns over China's economic growth and global inflation. A weaker outlook for the global economy also lowered chances of monetary policy tightening in the U.S.

The Australian dollar fell to yesterday's low amid disappointing data on Australia's key trading partner China. The flash China Manufacturing PMI came in at 47.1 in August compared to July final reading of 47.8. The index missed analysts' expectations for a modest decline to 47.7.

EUR/USD: the pair rose to $1.1290 in Asian trade

USD/JPY: the pair fell to Y122.80

GBP/USD: the pair traded within $1.5680-95
