A$ & NZ$ struggle vs USD; bonds fall as stocks jump SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars struggled to make any headway against a broadly firmer greenback on Wednesday, but held gains on the safe-haven yen after upbeat US data sparked a surge in Asian stocks.

Resistance is seen at $1.0576/85, Monday's high and the top of the daily Ichimoku cloud. The New Zealand dollar shed 0.4 percent on the day to $0.8198, trimming gains after rising as high as $0.8247 on Tuesday. Support is seen at its 55-day moving average round $0.8170, which has bolstered the currency in the past week. The robust US data, the latest being a strong 1.1 percent jump in ...

Dollar holds gains post-jobs data; Fed, BOJ eyed  SYDNEY: The dollar hovered around three-week highs against a basket of major currencies in Asia on Monday, having gained ground late last week after upbeat US jobs data was seen lessening the chance of fresh stimulus from the Federal Reserve this week.

The single currency was ...
Aussie, NZ dollar soft on weak Asian stocks, China WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars nudged lower on Monday, weighed by weaker Asian bourses following China's shocking trade deficit over the weekend.

Aussie & NZ dollars fall over 1pc on Bernanke, ECB  WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars fell more than one percent from multi-month highs against the greenback on Thursday after the US Federal Reserve did not hint of more stimulus for the economy, sparking a broad sell-down in risk trades. * Aussie back at $1.0726 after initially climbing to a seven-month high of $1.0857 when the ECB injected 530 bln euros into the European banking system.

Aussie & NZ dollars near multi-month highs on yen        WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars held near multi-month highs versus the yen on Monday, supported by broad weakness in the Japanese currency amid rising oil prices.

The Aussie soared as far as 87.41 yen, its highest ...
