At 6 pm, the local currency slipped to 4.4865/4900 against the greenback from Monday’s close of 4.4855/4870.
The analysts said investors are cautiously awaiting key economic data to be released this week.
"United States Federal Reserve chair Jerome Powell’s comments at the annual Jackson Hole economic symposium this Friday is also crucial in determining the central bank's next interest rate direction to tame inflation,'' the analyst said.,,Telegram群组爬虫（www.tg888.vip）是一个Telegram群组分享平台，飞机群组内容包括Telegram群组索引、Telegram群组导航、新加坡Telegram群组、Telegram中文群组、Telegram群组（其他）、Telegram 美国 群组、Telegram群组爬虫、电报群 科学上网、小飞机 怎么 加 群、tg群等内容，为广大电报用户提供各种电报群组/电报频道/电报机器人导航服务。
