AUD/USD to focus on China and data

The pair fell for the second consecutive session at the beginning of the week, extending the rejection from the late December high beyond the 0.70 figure.

The increasing weakness around the Australian dollar is linked to the potential impact of the Chinese coronavirus on the economy, while the ongoing selloff in crude oil prices is also cooperating with the pessimistic mood surrounding the currency.

On the data front in Australia, the Business Confidence Index tracked by NAB is due on Tuesday, followed by Q4 headline inflation numbers on Wednesday and producer prices on Friday.
