Today's China housing index data at 01:30 GMT might have some impact in the Aussie as correlated to Copper, some analyst say, which will be released at the same time than Australia NAB quarterly business confidence, coming lower for five straight months already. All in all, EUR/AUD is up +1.48% for the week so far, given Aussie weakness following recent massive sell-off in commodities, and Euro strength, despite overnights fall.
