The dollar stabilized on Monday after the release of economic data, while optimism about the prospects for the Chinese economy supported the Asian currency. By 7:30 London time, the dollar remained at the minimum-maximum amount in euros, at $1.1099 and just below the eight-month peak in the Japanese yen, at 110.19 yen per dollar. Dollar index to the basket without distinct dynamics.
Chinese yuan rose 0.2%, updating the six-month peak. The Australian and New Zealand dollars rose slightly. The Australian dollar added 0.19%, the New Zealand dollar – 0.08%.

Trading operations at a minimum low of $1.2994, which in this case is dangerous because the Bank of England may lower rates at the end of the month – especially if data on business activity this week is pessimistic.
