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 96.80. It was last at 97.44, having shed more than 5 yen in three weeks. Not helping sentiment was a hostage siege in the heart of Sydney, where dozens of people were believed to be trapped inside a cafe, raising fears of an attack by Islamic militants. "People don't need much reason to sell the Aussie and they have the approval from the Reserve Bank of Australia to do so," said Sean Callow, a senior ...

NZ dollar rallies after RBNZ, drags Australian dollar up SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars regained some ground on Thursday after the Reserve Bank of New Zealand sounded less dovish than some had wagered on, while the US dollar suffered a shakeout of long positions.

Dollar drop eases pressure on metals SYDNEY: Metals edged higher on Thursday as the dollar weakened against an index of currencies on year-end positioning and partly due to risk-aversion triggered by steep losses in oil. "All these extreme moves in the oil markets have repercussions on sentiment in other asset classes. But generally metals have held up extremely well," said analyst Mark Keenan of Societe Generale in Singapore."A lot of that is because metals discounted the Chinese slowdown quite early on ...
Dollar under pressure after shake out of crowded bullish positions SYDNEY/TOKYO: The dollar nursed hefty losses on Wednesday following a brutal shakeout of bullish positions as investors found incentives to take profits as the year-end loomed.
