Aussie, Kiwi up after China survey, Canadian dollar at 5-month high LONDON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars both jumped about half a percent on Monday after a survey pointed to the first expansion in six months by China's manufacturing, a sector that is crucial to world growth.The Canadian dollar also reached a five-month high, building on its 0.6 percent gain on Friday. Surprisingly high inflation and robust retail sales made it look less likely the central bank would maintain its accommodative policy stance.The upbeat HSBC China PMI report offered relief to investors fretting about the health of Australia's biggest export market and a recent slide in iron ore prices. The Aussie rose to as high as $0.9444, near its April 10 peak of $0.9461."There has just been a bit of a risk-on play this morning," said Stephen Gallo, head of European currency strategy at Canadian bank BMO in London. "The Aussie, kiwi and Canadian dollar all look wrapped up in ...

NZ dollar jumps to record highs on trade basis after Fed WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The New Zealand dollar vaulted to a lifetime high against a basket of currencies on Thursday, and along with the neighbouring Australian dollar notched hefty gains versus the US dollar after dovish comments by the US Federal Reserve. The New Zealand dollar pushed up to 81.30 on a trade-weighted basis, and touched a six-week peak against the US dollar. It hovered near its highest since early May against the Aussie and yen, while it ...
Dollar firm, stocks subdued as inflation adds to Fed risk SYDNEY: The dollar held firm with higher Treasury yields on Wednesday after a surprisingly high reading for US inflation threatened to give a hawkish tilt to the Federal Reserve's policy outlook later in the session. The risk was enough to keep Asian share markets on the defensive with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan off 0.16 percent. Japan's Nikkei was the only real mover adding 0.42 percent as a softer yen helped offset ...
Australian and NZ dollars mark time as Fed outcome looms SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar steadied on Wednesday, a day after suffering its biggest one-day fall in nearly a month, while its New Zealand counterpart marked time ahead of the outcome of a widely-watched Federal Reserve meeting. The US central bank is expected to chop another $10 billion from its monthly bond purchases but was seen unlikely to make other concrete policy moves, leaving the focus on any clues to longer-term plans for interest rates. "With ...
Australia dollar slips on dovish RBA, NZ dollar subdued WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australia dollar lost some altitude on Tuesday following dovish comments by the Reserve Bank of Australia, dragging its New Zealand peer a touch lower in thinned markets. The Australian dollar slipped a quarter of US cent to $0.9363, after minutes of the June 3 meeting showed the RBA was not sure the current stimulus would be enough to offset a drag from falling mining investment and government belt tightening. "The Aussie drop shows ...
Australian & NZ dollars run into light profit-taking SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australia and New Zealand dollars drifted off multi-week highs against the US dollar and euro on Monday, partly on light profit-taking following a recent rally. The Australian dollar paused at $0.9395, from a high of $0.9427 on Friday and a two-month peak of $0.9438 also touched last week. It was unable to hold gains above $0.9400 as geo-political tensions in Iraq weighed somewhat on risky assets, including stocks. The euro trimmed recent losses ...
Australian dollar high, could fall at some point SYDNEY: The Australian dollar is at a high level given falls in prices for the country's major commodity exports, a top central banker said on Monday, adding he would not be surprised if the currency were to decline at some point.

The Australian dollar reached its highest ...
