Australia, NZ dollars resilient, trade figures help SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar proved resilient on Tuesday as demand against the euro and a smaller-than-feared trade deficit at home helped offset a global flight to safe-haven assets such as the yen and government bonds. The Australian dollar edged up to $0.8118, having touched a 5-1/2-year trough of $0.8036 on Monday. Resistance was found at the 10-day moving average of $0.8127. It gained around a quarter of a US cent after data showed Australia's trade deficit was not as large as feared in November at A$925 million. While the price of iron ore, Australia's largest export earner, has fallen steeply, the country is shipping much more of the product. But Elias Haddad, a senior currency strategist at Commonwealth Bank, doubted the Aussie bounce would last. "Fundamentals remain weak with falling commodity prices, narrowing interest rate differentials between the United States and Australia and unimpressive Chinese economic activity," said Elias Haddad, ...

Australian & NZ dollars bruised by worries on Europe easing SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars came under pressure in thin trade on Monday, as growing speculation of drastic monetary easing in Europe gave a boost to the US dollar.

Australian & NZ dollars pinned down in holiday lull SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar languished near 4-1/2-year lows on Tuesday, while the New Zealand dollar held steady in a market lacking conviction with many investors having closed their books for the year.

The Aussie has shed nearly 9 ...
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 ...
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 ...
