Aussie hits 10-month high on yen, bond yields jump              WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian dollar scaled a 10-month peak on the yen and bounced on the US dollar on Thursday, while bond yields soared to multi-month peaks as investors scaled back long-held positions in safe-haven Treasuries. The Antipodean currencies notched solid gains on the yen, which has recently become the funding currency of choice for carry trades in place of the US dollar. The Australian dollar rose as high as 88.02 yen before running into heavy resistance, having flirted twice this month with the psychological barrier of 88.00. A sustained break would target the May high of 88.75. It was last at 87.90. The kiwi was also well supported versus a broadly weaker Japanese currency, rising 0.5 percent to 68.10 yen. It touched a seven-month high around 68.30 on Wednesday. The Antipodeans had a harder time against a firm US dollar but did manage to edge up from seven-week lows. "The US dollar is now ...

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. This saw the Aussie dollar idle at $1.0538 in late trade, against $1.0540 in New York. Still, it held off a seven-week low of $1.0473 plumbed on Monday. Traders cited bids around $1.0510, the first level of support, ahead of $1.0470, ...
Aussie, NZ dollars soft and steady ahead of Fed  WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars were sitting lower against the US dollar on Tuesday, with downbeat news about China and the eurozone weighing on sentiment, while investors stayed cautious ahead of a Federal Reserve meeting. * The Australian dollar at $1.0517, from $1.0526 locally on Monday. It ranged between $1.0473 to $1.0544 overnight in a muted session that offered few positives for commodity currencies. * Support for the Aussie seen initially at $1.0470, the 38.2 ...
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 euro, however, struggled after suffering what traders described as a buy-the-rumour-sell-the-fact fall on Greece's bond swap deal with private creditors which will clear the way for a new bailout. 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. The Australian dollar softer at $1.0538 vs $1.0567 in NY late Friday, having pierced through the Ichimoku cloud top at $1.0545. Next key support seen at $1.0508, last week's low. Traders cite selling from macro-funds and Japanese investors, with talk of buying interest around $1.0510-25 and stops below $1.0500. Still, Antipodeans remarkably resilient ...
Euro off lows as Greek debt deal, ECB loom  SYDNEY: The dollar was on the defensive in Asia on Thursday, while the euro and commodity currencies saw some reprieve from this week's battering as Greece's debt restructuring efforts looked to have made some progress. A Wall Street Journal report suggesting a different approach to bond buying by the Federal Reserve and upbeat US private-sector jobs data further lifted risk sentiment. This saw the euro bounce off a trough of $1.3095 to $1.3149. Support for the ...
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. But with the ECB done for, now it soon ...
