04.01.2016 06:41 Foreign exchange market. Asian session: the U.S. dollar declined

Economic calendar (GMT0):

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

01:35 Japan Manufacturing PMI (Finally) December 52.6 52.5 52.6

01:45 China Markit/Caixin Manufacturing PMI December 48.6 49 48.2

The U.S. dollar fell to a ten-month low against the yen as tensions in the Middle East and weak economic data from China increased demand for this safe-haven currency. Risk sentiment declined after Saudi Arabia cut diplomatic ties with Iran on Sunday.

The Australian dollar fell amid disappointing data from Australia's major trading partner China and weaker-than-expected domestic data. The index of activity in Australia's manufacturing sector from AiG declined to 51.9 points in December from 52.5 reported previously. The index remained above 50, which suggests expansion.

The Markit/Caixin Manufacturing PMI for China declined to 48.2 in December from 48.6 in the previous month falling further into contraction territory. Economists had expected a reading of 49.0. Many experts don't expect China's economic growth to exceed 6.5% in 2016.
