    Australia Q3 House Prices Ease 0.2% On Quarter



    Residential property prices in Australia fell 0.2 percent on quarter in the third quarter of 2017, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday.

    That missed forecasts for a gain of 0.5 percent following the 1.9 percent jump in the previous three months.

    On a yearly basis, house prices were up 8.3 percent - again missing forecasts for 8.8 percent and down from 10.2 percent in the three months prior. The capital city residential property price indexes fell in Sydney (-1.4 percent), Perth (-1.0 percent), Darwin (-2.6 percent) and Canberra (-0.2 percent) and rose in Melbourne (+1.1 percent), Brisbane (+0.7 percent), Adelaide (+0.7 percent) and Hobart (+3.4 percent).

    Annually, residential property prices rose in Hobart (+13.8 percent), Melbourne (+13.2 percent), Sydney (+9.4 percent), Canberra (+6.9 percent), Adelaide (+4.8 percent) and Brisbane (+3.5 percent) and fell in Darwin (-6.3 percent) and Perth (-2.4 percent).

    "The fall in Sydney property prices this quarter was consistent with market indicators," said ABS Chief Economist Bruce Hockman.

    The total value of residential dwellings in Australia was A$6.779 trillion at the end of the September quarter, rising A$14.843 billion over the quarter.

    The mean price of residential dwellings fell A$1,200 to A$681,100 and the number of residential dwellings rose by 40,200 to 9,954,100 in Q3.

    Also on Tuesday, the latest survey from National Australia Bank showed that consumer confidence in Australia slowed in November with an index score of +6.

    That's down from the upwardly revised +9 in October (originally +8).

    Business conditions also slowed in November with index coming in at a score of +12, down sharply from +21 in the previous month.

    Canadian Dollar Little Changed Ahead of Fed Meeting, Poloz Speech



    The Canadian dollar was nearly flat versus the US currency as investors turned their focus on this week's Federal Reserve interest rate hike decision as well as a speech by Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz.

    The loonie fell 1.3 percent the previous week after the central bank delivered a more dovish tone than investors had anticipated. The Bank of Canada kept its benchmark interest rate at one percent.

    The Canadian central bank is concerned about a number of uncertainties that could impact the nation's economy, which includes renegotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement.

    NAFTA talks convene in Washington next week for a limited round of negotiations aimed at demonstrating progress toward closing easier chapters.

    The U.S. central bank is widely expected to hike interest rates at its two-day policy meeting, and is seen possibly tightening rates two or three times next year.

    The Canadian dollar traded in a narrow range of C$1.2832 to C$1.2868. On Friday, it reached its weakest level in a week, at C$1.2880.

    According to U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data and Reuters calculations, speculators reduced bullish wagers on the Canadian currency.

    Canadian government bond prices were lower across much of a flatter yield curve, with the two-year off by 1.5 Canadian cents to yield 1.512 percent and the 10-year dropping 1 Canadian cent to yield 1.862 percent.

    The gap between Canada's two-year yield and its U.S. equivalent widened by 1.5 basis points to a spread of -31.1 basis points.

    Bitcoin Scales New Record High in Rally Towards $20, 000



    The digital currency Bitcoin reached another record peak on Tuesday, two days after the debut of the bitcoin futures on a U.S. exchange and before the launch of another futures contract next week, raising investors' hope that the Bitcoin is nearing the $20, 000 mark.

    On Sunday, Cboe Global Markets introduced bitcoin futures, allowing investors to experience trading with the cryptocurrency through a large, regulated exchange. On December 17, CME Group is expected to launch its own futures contract.

    The biggest cryptocurrency in the world was priced at $17, 310 on Bitstamp exchange, up 5.1 percent on the day. Early on Tuesday, bitcoin rose to a record high of $17, 428.42, recording an almost 20-fold rise in its value for the year as it attracted millions of new investors.

    However, as bitcoin hit a new record, digital currency exchange operators Coinbase and Bitfinex reported issues with service via their website, causing problems for traders looking to lock in their profits on the latest gains in the value of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

    Meanwhile, the one-month bitcoin futures on Cboe Futures Exchange traded slightly tepid, with prices generally stead and volumes around a third of those seen on Monday. Bitcoin futures due on January traded at $18, 450 with around 1,416 contracts traded.

    Australian Dollar at 1-Month Peak as Jobless Rate Near 5-Year Lows



    The Australian dollar rose to a one-month peak on Thursday after the jobless rate remained steady for the third straight month in November while number of full time roles increased.

    According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the jobless rate stood at 5.4 percent for the third month in a row and is also at its lowest level since 2013. The participation rate jumped to 65.5 percent, highs not seen since early 2011.

    Australian employment grew the most in over two years and is extending a run of 14 consecutive month of gains.

    According to figures from the ABS, 61,600 net new jobs were added in November, compared with forecasts for an 18,000 rise and above an upwardly revised 7,800 gain in October. The number of full-time jobs rose in November with 41,000 jobs added. October's figures were revised upwards to 31,000 full-time roles from 24,300.

    Following the publication of the data, the aussie increased by 0.4 percent against the greenback to $0.7668, a one-month peak. The data will be welcomed by the Reserve Bank of Australia which is hoping the strong run in employment would ultimately lead to higher wages growth and inflation.

    However, it appears that companies are not so keen on paying workers more, which left wage growth near record lows. Wage growth is moving at 2.0 percent, only slightly above inflation of 1.8 percent. This weighs on the spending power of Australian consumers who are already facing a mountain of debt.

    Latest figures showed that Australia's economy picked up at an annual 2.8 percent pace in the third quarter.
