Fundamental view

Chinese trade data

The Aussie received support, following the release of Chinese trade data earlier in the day. Chinas exports climbed at an annualized rate of 15.3% in September, or the fastest pace since February 2013, and also outstripped the median forecast by experts for an 11.8% gain. Total imports rose at a pace of 7% in September compared to the same month a year ago, beating expectations pointing to a 2.7% increase. Imports of iron ore registered the second highest level this year, while monthly crude oil imports expanded to their second highest level on record. At the same time, nations balance of trade produced a surplus at the amount of 31.00 billion USD in September, or below expectations of a surplus figure of 41.10 billion USD. This data usually has an impact on the Australian dollar, as China is Australias largest trading partner.

Traders bets on Fed policy

US dollar lost ground against peers, as traders reduced their bets that the Federal Reserve Bank will introduce a rate hike in 2015. Market players saw a 32% probability that the Federal Reserve will raise the federal funds rate by July 2015, according to data by Bloomberg News. On September 30th the odds of such an action were 56%.

Markets in the United States and Japan are closed for public holidays today, while thin liquidity may boost volatility in the Foreign Exchange Market, according to Joseph Capurso, a currency strategist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia in Sydney.
