A$ & NZ$ retreat; odds narrow on rate cut  WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars fell prey to profit-taking in choppy markets on Monday, as recent hefty gains left the currencies overstretched and concerns about global growth provided an excuse to sell.  The Aussie dipped to $1.0419, from $1.0446 in early trade. Traders saw support from layered bids under $1.0400 with resistance at $1.0564, last week's high. The local currency is still up more than two cents since it hit a low of $1.0165 earlier this month. The New Zealand dollar skidded 0.8 percent on the day to $0.8230, with traders citing selling by macro funds, which knocked the kiwi across the board. Both Antipodeans retreated against the yen as Japanese investors repatriated funds ahead of half-year book-closing at the end of September. The kiwi suffered the most, shedding as much as one percent at one stage. It last traded at 64.33 yen, from 64.75 in early trade. It climbed 65.69 yen last ...

Yen rebounds after sell-off, A$ dollar falls  SINGAPORE/SYDNEY: The yen pushed higher against the dollar on Thursday, staying on a firm footing after staging a surprise bounce the previous day as an initial sell-off in reaction to the Bank of Japan's monetary easing fizzled. The Aussie dollar retreated following a lacklustre reading on Chinese manufacturing activity, and the yen's rise gradually picked up steam after that, with stop-loss position unwinding adding to its momentum. The US dollar fell 0.4 percent to 78.09 yen, pulling ...
NZ dollar on fire after hot GDP, AUD lags for China data  WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The New Zealand dollar rose across the board on Thursday after the nation's economy grew a faster-than-expected pace, in contrast with a lagging Aussie dollar as investors anxiously awaited manufacturing data from China.   China's flash PMI for September due at 0230 GMT. A further drop from August's 47.6 would only add to concerns about a hard landing there and undermine the Antipodeans. Aussie and kiwi are highly sensitive to news out of China, a key ...
