Monday in Asia, the Australian and the New Zealand dollars plummeted against their most major counterparts as a slide in Asian equities dented demand for higher-yielding currencies.
The mood remains quite cautious in markets across the Asia-Pacific region today following a weak close on Wall Street on Friday and a decline in oil and commodity prices. Though some of the markets in the region are seeing some selective buying, the gains are not any significantly pronounced. Concerns about inflation in some parts of the globe and debt worries in Greece are also weighing on sentiment.
Australia’s S&P 200 index and the All Ordinaries index fell 0.8% each. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng slipped 1.7%, China’s Shangai composite index declined 0.2% and South Korea’s Kospi dropped 0.95%.
The NZ dollar weakened against the currencies of US, Japan and Australia in Asian deals on Monday. At 11:45 pm ET, the kiwi fell to 6-day lows of 0.7056 against the greenback, 63.85 against the yen and 1.2964 against the Aussie, compared to Friday’s close of 0.7090, 64.21 and 1.2947, respectively. The next downside target level for the kiwi is seen at 0.700 against the greenback, 63.0 against the yen and 1.311 against the aussie. As of now, the kiwi is worth 0.7062 against the greenback, 63.89 against the yen and 1.2960 against the aussie.
The NZ dollar slipped to a 4-day low 1.9175 against the euro in early Monday Asian deals at 5:20 pm ET. Although the kiwi recovered thereafter, it pulled back again after reaching a high of 1.9112 by about 9:45 pm ET. At present, the euro-kiwi pair is worth 1.9145, compared to last week’s close of 1.9105. If the kiwi drops further, it may likely target the 1.926 level.
During Asian deals on Monday, the Australian dollar slumped against the US currency. At present, the aussie-greenback pair is trading at a 6-day low of 0.9128 with 0.910 seen as the next downside target level. The pair closed last week’s trading at 0.9170.
The Aussie also plunged to a 6-day low of 82.62 against the yen in early Monday Asian deals at 11:50 pm ET. The next downside target level for the aussie is seen at 82.4. Currently, the aussie-kiwi pair is worth 82.72, compared to Friday’s closing value of 83.03.
The Aussie that plummeted to a 4-day low of 1.4810 against the euro in early Monday Asian trading at 5:15 pm ET rebounded thereafter and largely traded in a loose range. As of now, the euro-aussie pair is worth 1.4793. The pair closed last week’s deals at 1.4771.
In Asian deals on Monday, the Aussie bounced between 0.9285 and 0.9310 against the Canadian dollar. The next downside and upside target levels for the aussie-loonie pair are seen around 0.926 and 0.938, respectively. The pair that closed last week’s trading at 0.9323 is presently worth 0.9299.
Thanks so much for the blog article.Thanks Again. Much obliged.
Amazing blog! Are you experiencing any hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to get started on my very own blog soon but I’m a little bit lost
on everything. Do you advise starting with a free of charge platform like WordPress
or get a paid option? There are many choices available that I’m completely
confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks a good deal!
I’ve read a few excellent stuff here. Certainly value bookmarking for
revisiting. I wonder how a lot attempt you set to make this
type of fantastic informative internet site.
I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
Really enjoyed this article. Great.
I needed to thank you for this great read!!
I certainly loved every tiny amount of it. I’ve got you book-marked to check out
new stuff you post
Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
Hey, thanks for the blog. Really Great.
naturally much like your website however you have to check
the spelling on several of your respective posts.
A number are rife with spelling problems and I in discovering it very bothersome to tell the reality then again I will definitely come back again.
Fascinating blog! Is the theme customized or do you download
it from somewhere? A theme like yours with some simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.
Please inform me in which you got your design. Bless you
