The Australian dollar fell and hit a six-year low against the U.S. dollar amid declines in Chinese stocks and iron ore prices.
The pound continued falling against the dollar amid unexpected declines in UK manufacturing production. In May the corresponding index fell by 0.6% compared to the previous month.
The yen advanced against the dollar due to demand for this safe-haven currency as investors prefer not to take risks because of declines in Asian equities. However the pace of gains slowed down after the release of current account data. The report showed that the country's unadjusted current account rose to Y1,880.9 billion in May compared to Y1,326.4 billion reported previously. Economists expected a reading of Y1542 billion.
