    Euro escalates ahead of US jobs data



    The euro lost its ground Thursday, a day before the US jobs data that may affect the Federal Reserve's timing of raising interest rates this year. Traders are anticipating the nonfarm payrolls data, which many of them believe the figures may give a clearest picture of the overall US economy. Against the US dollar, the common currency closed at $1.1196. Thursday's move emphasizes the uncertainty encompassing the market “regarding the Fed's timing,” said Joe Manimbo, Senior Market Analyst at Western Union.

    Australia Job Ads Rise At Faster Rate In September l



    Job advertisements in Australia climbed for the second straight month in September at a faster pace, latest survey from the Australian and New Zealand Banking Group revealed Monday. Total job ads rose a seasonally adjusted 3.9 percent month-over-month in September, much faster than the 1.3 percent increase in August. In July, ads had fallen 0.4 percent. Internet job ads also grew at a faster pace of 4.0 percent monthly in September, following a 1.3 percent rise in the previous month. Meanwhile, newspaper ads fell 2.7 percent over the prior month, marking its first drop in three months. On an annual basis, job ads surged 10.5 percent in September, slightly slower than August's 10.7 percent growth. "The positive trend in job advertising is a sign that the economy is so far adjusting relatively well to significant headwinds from falling commodity prices and mining investment," ANZ Chief Economist Warren Hogan, said. "While we expect momentum in non-mining activity to remain quite good in the near-term, our view is that the significant support to growth from the factors above will wane heading into 2016." "For this reason, we expect employment growth to remain reasonably healthy over the remainder of 2015 but to then soften next year. This is likely to prompt the Reserve Bank to provide a little more monetary policy support to prevent the unemployment rate from rising further."

    US dollar holds losses as traders pare back rate bets



    The US dollar nursed losses Monday as disappointing US jobs data made investors scale back bets the Federal Reserve was on course to increase interest rates as early as this month. Last week, the nonfarm payrolls report showed the US employers added only 142,000 jobs in September. The greenback finished at $1.1233 from Friday's $1.1319. Against the Japanese yen, the currency closed at ¥120.01 from ¥118.68. “Though the Fed anticipated to defer its first rate hike until the first quarter of 2016, we still believe “the US economy is one of the few capable of generating inflation due to a relative tight labour market,” said strategists at Barclays. Uncertainty regarding the Fed's timing of rate increase has kept the currency locked in ranges although the US central bank is still expected to be the first one to raise rates in the near term.

    Japanese yen declines as haven demand falters on higher stocks



    The Japanese yen plummeted Tuesday as a rebound in commodities and stocks dampened demand for safe haven. The currency ended at ¥120.48 per US dollar and ¥85.36 per Australian dollar.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Japan will commence their two-day meeting today.

    Australia retains rates as Aussie alleviates commodity price plunge



    Australia's central bank on Tuesday left interest rates unchanged as the Australian dollar eased the impact of commodity prices' downfall and a weaker Chinese economy. In a statement, Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens said the cash rate is still at a record low of 2%. The RBA reduced the rate twice this year, in May and February. The Aussie has lost almost 9% in the second quarter. Stevens emphasized there had been further softening in China and east Asia lately, and that the currency is adjusting to the considerable declines in major commodity prices. The Aussie ended at 71.18 US cents from 70.83 US cents ahead of the rate decision.

    Global market at risk of new financial crisis, says IMF



    The International Monetary Fund warned the world is at risk of a fresh financial crisis leading to global recession if governments and policymakers misgovern market stability risks. IMF's head of financial stability José Viñals said the bad scenario does not depend on severe presumptions at all, indicating the increase in risk premiums and corporate defaults among emerging economies, and decrease in appetite for riskier assets. The institution, in its bi-annual global financial stability report, imitated the effects of the pressing financial perils in emerging markets turning sour from another shock to confidence or policy mishaps. IMF projected spending growth would slide sharply in advanced and emerging economies, resulting in a shortfall in output of 2.4% by 2017. Global growth would face the likelihood of slumping below 2% for a year.
