AUDUSD trading at 0.8185 AUDNZD trading at 1.0482 with last week seeing tests of levels not seen since 1997 Looking ahead the start of tomorrow’s Asian session will see Chinese New Loans for December, with Japanese Bank Lending figures also out.

In Europe today the Danish Consumer Price Index figure fell to 0.3% from 0.5% previously. Italian Industrial Output figures also due for publication this session. A very slow news day in Europe.
