Further downside could drag AUD/USD to the mid-0.6500s in the next weeks, noted FX Strategists at UOB Group. 24-hour view: œAUD traded between 0.6586 and 0.6622, lower and narrower than our expected sideway-trading range of 0.6590/0.6635.

The downside momentum in AUD/JPY looks to have stalled in Asia. The pair is currently trading near 72.68, representing marginal losses on the day.

Wednesday, 26 February 2020 01:51 WIB | GOLD EMAS

Gold futures fell nearly 2% on Tuesday, with prices giving back nearly all of what they gained a day earlier.

Tuesday, 25 February 2020 23:35 WIB | GBP/USD pound DOLLAR

The US dollar is falling alongside ten-year treasuries. Coronavirus fears have risen as three more European countries have confirmed cases of the respiratory disease.
