Aussie dollar vulnerable, could break below 81 US cents; NZD steady SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar flirted with a 4-1/2 year trough against a broadly firmer greenback on Tuesday while its New Zealand peer was steady in thin year-end trade. Financial markets in Australia and New Zealand will close early on Wednesday and stay shut for the rest of the week for the Christmas holidays. The Aussie last traded at $0.8123, having drifted in a slim $0.8117/32 range, not far from last week's low of $0.8107. A break there could open the way to the May 2010 trough of $0.8066. The Aussie has shed close to 9 percent so far this year, dragged by falling global commodity prices and sub-par economic growth at home. Of concern has been this year's 50 percent slide in the price of iron ore, Australia's top export.The fall came at a time when mining investment was slowing sharply, while other parts of the economy remained stubbornly subdued. ...

High-flying dollar pauses in holiday lull, US data eyed SYDNEY: The dollar touched a fresh two-week high against the yen on Tuesday, but struggled to make further headway in a market subdued by a holiday in Japan. A record-closing high on Wall Street had helped lift the greenback against the yen in New York, and modest follow-through buying in Asia saw the dollar come close to 120.20. However, momentum quickly faded in thin year-end conditions, leaving the greenback stuck in a very slim 120.01/120.19 ...
Euro off to shaky start in subdued market, dollar holds strong SYDNEY: The euro probed fresh two-year lows early on Monday in a subdued start to a holiday-shortened week, extending a multi-month trend of weakness against the dollar that many traders say will remain intact in the new year. Speculation is high that the European Central Bank (ECB) will be forced to expand its asset-buying program to include sovereign debt in 2015, at a time when the Federal Reserve is preparing to do the opposite and ...
Australia & NZ dollars find some calm after turbulent times SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars struggled for momentum on Monday, having steadied from recent volatility as investors found little incentive to trade in the final two weeks of the year. Many traders have already closed their books for 2014, and thin markets make for choppy conditions that are likely to keep all but the hardiest players on the sidelines. The Aussie was flat at $0.8143, not far from a 4-1/2-year trough of $0.8107 ...
Australian & NZ dollars feel the Fed pinch SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars nursed deep losses on Thursday after the Federal Reserve showed enough confidence in the US economy to stay on track to raise interest rates next year, giving the US dollar a fillip. The kiwi slipped to a one-week low of $0.7690 in volatile trade, brushing off domestic data showing stronger-than-expected quarterly economic growth. "The data doesn't change our forecast for the first Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) ...
Australia & NZ dollars pinned down by China, yen rally SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar fell to 4-1/2-year lows on Tuesday, while the New Zealand dollar struggled as growth concerns in China and plunging oil prices encouraged investors to buy the safe haven yen. The Australian dollar was at $0.8222, having touched $0.8200, its weakest since mid-2010 and an area packed with option barriers. A clear break would target the 2010 low of $0.8066. It got cold-shouldered after China's factory activity slowed more than expected last ...
Australia dollar battered by oil dip, hostage incident, NZ dollar softer SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar dropped to 4-1/2-year lows on Monday on falling commodity prices and concerns about global growth, while a hostage incident in Sydney further undermined sentiment. The Australian dollar slipped to $0.8214, from $0.8244 in early trade. It plumbed $0.8204, the lowest since mid-2010, as Brent crude futures fell to a new five-year low near $60 a barrel. Selling against the yen also pressured the Aussie which dropped to a six-week trough of ...
