The Australian dollar strengthened against the U.S. dollar amid positive statistics from China. The country's Leading indicators index from the Conference Board rose to 0.9% in July from 0.6% reported previously. In May the index was above 1.1%. "July's gain in the Leading Economic Index for China was driven mainly by bank loans, while consumer sentiment, manufacturing, and exports were all weak," Said Jing Sima, senior economist at The Conference Board. He also noted that China's economy is likely to face increasing downside risks in the coming months. China is Australia's major trading partner.

The yen fell against the greenback amid correction in Japanese stocks. The Nikkei stepped into the green area. Yesterday the yen rose sharply amid lower expectations for global economic growth and inflation and uncertainties related to monetary policy tightening in the U.S. Now investors expect the Federal Reserve to raise its benchmark rate in December or in 2016.

EUR/USD: the pair fell to $1.1525 in Asian trade
