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. Investors are nervous about pushing it much higher, but the Aussie's attractive yield continues to be a major drawcard in the current low volatility environment. Indeed, the global chase for better returns has pushed Australia's 10-year bond yield to 13-month lows at 3.427 percent and driven its premium over US Treasuries to less than 100 basis points, the smallest in more than eight years. The central bank's attempt to talk down the currency for the second time in as many weeks prompted little reaction ...

It was also slightly higher against the euro and yen. Last week Reserve Bank of ...
Aussie dollar cautious ahead of RBA meeting, kiwi off peak WELLINGTON/SYDNEY: The Australian and New Zealand dollars eased on Monday, with the kiwi retreating from a near three-year peak while caution ahead of an interest rate decision this week kept the Aussie pinned down.

Pound sags after less hawkish BoE, G3 currencies adrift SYDNEY: The British pound nursed losses on Wednesday after comments from the Bank of England governor cooled expectations for an interest rate hike this year, while its G3 counterparts drifted in well-worn ranges.

Carney said Britain's economy still has plenty of slack to ...
