This morning statistics were released, according to which the rate of private capital expenditure in Australia rose 0.8% in the fourth quarter. The indicator was better than expected, which was a decline by 0.3%. In the third quarter of 2015 private capital spending "fell" by 8.4%.

Investors are monitoring oil and China. If there is no updated information for the first paragraph, the second remains ambiguous. The representative of the Central Bank of China, Mr. Gang said on Thursday that the regulator will continue to work with a flexible pricing of the yuan exchange rate. In this there is no special news, considering that at the end of last year, the PBC was forced to loosen its currency, but in the beginning of this year held a series of "infusions" of liquidity into the market. The balance between credit and currency reform and financial stability in China must be held - it is the main task of the Central Bank.
It is possible that in the course of the day there will be new information that will impact the oil market and, consequently, the behaviour of the US dollar and traded pairs.

Venezuela, as a major "ideological centre" of the initiative, is planning a new date of the meeting of the concerned parties. It can irritate the investors in the capital markets.
