    AUD/USD has edged higher as the Chinese return with the first fix since the Chinese new year. The yuan fix has the Yuan up 3% vs the greenback on the mid point of the fix at 6.5118.

    The week ahead is a busy one for the Aussie, while we await the Chinese trade data and the Aussie jobs numbers. The jobs numbers may have more attention paid to them, or rather, they are even more eagerly awaited than previous months because the turmoil in markets is driving investors to safety and given the amount of confidence Stevens has put into the labor market, traders will be scrutinizing the full data behind the headline. Also, we have the FOMC minutes this week.
