The Euro/USD didn’t do much during yesterday’s trading as it slightly declined; the Aussie dollar sharply fell yesterday. This may have been because of the speculation regarding an economic slowdown in China, one of the prime importers of Australia’s commodities and products. Furthermore, many other currencies also depreciated against the U.S dollar including the Yen and Canadian dollar. Silver and gold prices also traded sharply down on Tuesday; finally, crude oil price (WTI) also sharply fell yesterday.
