The euro declined against the U.S. dollar after European Central Bank President Mario Draghi hinted to possibility of additional steps to stimulate the economy and inflation. "The Governing Council is willing and able to act by using all the instruments available within its mandate if warranted in order to maintain an appropriate degree of monetary accommodation," Draghi said. Berenberg chief economist Holger Schmieding said that considering the current inflation level there is a 60% chance of further easing in December. Meanwhile expectations for a rate hike by the Federal Reserve rose.

The Australian dollar rose on domestic economic data and data from China. The Markit/Caixin Services PMI for China rose to 52.0 in October from 50.5 reported previously. "This shows that previous stimulus policies have begun to take effect, while the economic structure steadily improved," Dr. He Fan, Chief Economist at Caixin Insight Group, said.

Meanwhile Australia's seasonally-adjusted trade deficit came in at A$2.32 billion in September compared to a deficit of A$3.0 billion expected by economists and the A$2.71 billion deficit reported previously. The deficit contracted due to stronger exports. Exports rose by 3%, imports rose by 2%.
