AUD/USD is up around 25 basis points to 0.7560, while AUD/EUR is up a similar amount at 0.6729. Chinese industrial production is due at midday, with the figure tipped to rise ever so slightly to 6.2% from 6.00%. Looking at Chinese industrial production from a more macro stand point it would appear they've found a new normal rate of growth around that 6% mark where its been now for around two years.
