AUD/JPY Drops to 74.35 After Aussie Data Dump
Thursday, 5 December 2019 08:45 WIB | CURRENCIES |AussieDollar Australia,

AUD/JPY plummets to 74.36 amid the Asian session on Thursday. The pair reacts to the downbeat Retail Sales and Trade Balance numbers from Australia.

Australia™s October month Trade Balance slipped below 6,100M forecast to 4,502M while Retail Sales lagged behind 0.3% market consensus to 0.0%. This joins the previously released downbeat Aussie Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data and indicates hardships for the Australian dollar (AUD).

Further, Reuters™ news that Japan™s government is near to economic stimulus package worth about 13 trillion Japanese yen (JPY) also drags the pair down.

Trade sentiment again witnesses downside pressure as the Washington Post conveys that the United States (US) House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said President Trump™s conduct with Ukraine rose to an impeachable offense. Also contributing to the market pessimism could be the talks surrounding the US-Iran relation after The Telegraph said that the Trump administration considers 14,000 more troops for the Middle East.

The pair traders were earlier cheering the US President Donald Trump™s comments that the trade talks with China are going œvery well.

With no major data on the economic calendar, investors will keep eyes on trade/political headlines for fresh direction.
