The Australian dollar had a mixed day yesterday, starting off with a negative reading for the CB Leading indicator data at -0.3%, which represents a lack of economic growth.
Later on, we saw mixed house price data, with the year on year figure reaching 6.9% – up from 6.7%; however, the quarterly figure showed a slight decrease from 2% to 1.6%.
The Canadian dollar struggled yesterday despite a lack of data as a strong US dollar and weak oil prices hurt the currency.
