China's central bank responded to yuan depreciation by setting its daily reference rate for the controlled currency at the largest gap to estimates since November.
In November, Australia's trade surplus increased to its biggest level in eight months, boosted by shipments of coal, pork, and grains, while imports fell as consumption plummeted.
Oil prices fell amid an unexpected surge in US stocks, overshadowing rising geopolitical worries in the Middle East.
