Forex Today: AUD hit by poor eco data, Sentix, Draghi eyed

We had an eventful Asian session, with the crucial Australian retail sales and Chinese services PMI releases, both of which disappointed markets and triggered fresh sell-off in AUD/USD. Meanwhile, the US dollar traded largely subdued against most of its majors in the Asian hours, despite sharp losses in the US treasury yields in wake of Friday’s unimpressive US NFP data.

We have a data-light calendar to kick-off a brand new week, with the Eurozone Sentix Investor Confidence and retail PMI data expected to fill in the EUR calendar, while ECB President Draghi’s speech will also grab a lot of attention ahead of the US Labour Market Conditions Index (LMCI).
