The Aussie was a shade softer at $0.9391, having on Friday pushed up from $0.9336. It remained well within a $0.9320/9505 range seen in the past month. Its New Zealand counterpart marked time at $0.8702, steadying after last week's 1.5 percent tumble, the biggest weekly decline in about six months.

New Zealand dollar slips on benign inflation data SYDNEY: The New Zealand dollar shed nearly half a US cent on Wednesday after local inflation data came in softer than expected, an outcome that could ease pressure on the central bank to continue tightening policy this year.

Dollar bulls hear hawkish hint from Yellen, inflation lifts sterling SYDNEY: The dollar clung to modest gains early on Wednesday after bulls latched onto a comment by the head of the Federal Reserve that rates could rise sooner if employment continued to improve, while strong inflation sent sterling to a six-year high.

The Aussie was little changed at $0.9394, having ...
Australian, NZ dollars seek fresh cues in event-filled week WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars marked time on Monday, mirroring a generally aimless currency market that appeared to be waiting for fresh cues this week from China data and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's congressional testimony. The Aussie traded at $0.9399, having drifted in a slim $0.9370/9401 range so far this session. Since April, the Aussie has basically been flatlining near 94 US cents.
