Thus, retail sales rose 3.2% over month in July after 2.7% growth in June, the Melbourne Institute and Westpac Bank Consumer Sentiment Index for Australia rose 18% over month to 93.8 in September after a 9.5% fall a month earlier. At the same time business confidence remained fragile despite a National Australia Bank index’s increase to -8 in August from -14 in the previous month. And the trade surplus declined to A$4.6 billion in July from A$8.1 billion in June when a decline to A$5 billion was forecast. Mixed Australian economic data are bearish for AU200.
