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

00:30 Australia ANZ Job Advertisements (MoM) December 1.1% Revised From 1.3% -0.1%

The Australian dollar fell against the greenback at the beginning of the session amid inflation data from China. The consumer price index came in at 0.5% in December. Economists had expected a reading of 0.4%. The index rose by 1.6% on an annualized basis after rising 1.5% in the previous month, which is well below the government's 2015 target of 3%.

The Australian dollar was further weighed by ANZ Job Advertisements data. The index declined by 0.1% in December compared to 1.3% reported previously. A low reading is a negative factor for the Australian economy.

The New Zealand dollar was supported by construction permissions data. The corresponding index rose by 1.8% in November after a 5.4% rise in October (revised from 5.1%) marking the tenth straight month of growth. A long-term indicator rose by 0.6% to the highest level since July 2004.

EUR/USD: the pair fluctuated within $1.0905-70 in Asian trade
