A$, NZ$ dollars edge off highs; trade deficit widens  SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars slipped against the US dollar on Tuesday, and ran into profit-taking on the yen as a two-percent gain in one week left the currencies ripe for a small correction.    The Aussie dipped to $1.0477, from $1.0504 early, as it met technical resistance, but remained within striking distance of a three-month peak of $1.0585 hit in December.   "We have been struggling in the past three days above $1.0500 where there are heavy sellers," said a trader at a European bank in Singapore, seeing the Aussie ranging between $1.0450 and $1.0550 in the next few days.   He cited buyers at $1.0450, with resistance seen at last week's high of $1.0527.   The local currency was also held back after Australia's trade deficit widened to its largest in five years as imports again outpaced exports. The deficit grew to A$2.6 billion versus forecasts of A$2.3 billion, representing the 11th straight month ...

Yuan near record as central bank sets fixing at eight-month high  SHANGHAI: China's central bank set its strongest midpoint in eight months on Tuesday after a fall in the dollar the day before, pushing the yuan close to its all-time high and raising the prospect of further appreciation.   The yuan changed hands at 6.2235 per dollar in early trade, a whisper away from late November's record high of 6.2223. The currency had retreated to 6.2258 near midday, 0.06 percent firmer than Monday's close.   The central bank's midpoint of ...

Yen TOKYO: The yen rebounded in Asian trade on Tuesday after suffering weeks of steep declines fuelled by promises from the country's new prime minister to push for more central bank easing.   The dollar weakened to 87.48 yen from 87.89 yen in New York trade, where last week it hit a peak of 88.41 yen, its highest level since mid-July 2010.   The euro also lost ground to 114.88 yen from 115.09 yen, while the single currency bought $1.3107, ...

Brazil real gains on inflows, Mexico peso dips  SAO PAULO: The Brazilian real drifted higher on Monday as dollars flowed back into the country, but the Mexican peso dipped in line with US stocks, with investors pocketing recent gains.   Trading volumes remained subdued after the holiday period, as a US session void of relevant economic data releases failed to inspire investors.   The Brazilian real gained 0.3 percent to 2.0295 per greenback as dollars resumed flowing in following a seasonal period of scarcity. Recent measures taken ...
