Australian & NZ dollars unable to keep gains, brace for China data SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars were unable to keep hard-won gains on Wednesday as global deflation and growth concerns resurfaced, while investors braced for a batch of data out of China.The Australian dollar eased back to $0.8689, from a peak of $0.8812 touched in a choppy session on Tuesday.

Australian dollar still high vs fundamentals SYDNEY: Despite the recent fall in the Australian dollar, it remains "higher than most conventional estimates of fundamentals would indicate," a senior Australian central banker said on Tuesday. That means the exchange rate is offering less assistance than it would normally be expected in achieving balanced growth in the economy, Reserve Bank of Australia Assistant Governor Guy Debelle told a Citi conference in Sydney. "A lower exchange rate would be helpful in achieving that objective," ...

The Australian dollar edged down to $0.8670, from $0.8700 in New York on Friday, pulling close to a four-year trough of $0.8642 touched last week.

Aussie climbs, brushing off weak Australian jobs reading WELLINGTON: The Australian dollar edged up on Thursday, boosted by broad selling in the US dollar and as investors ultimately shrugged off a weak reading of Australia's labour market after major revisions to the series cast doubt on the data's reliability. The Aussie rose 0.2 percent to $0.8857, bouncing back from an initial slide to $0.8791 after official figures showed the Australian economy lost a net 29,700 jobs in September, wrongfooting expectations for a 20,000 ...
Australian & NZ dollars slip, jobs data eyed SYDNEY/WELLINGTON: The Australian and New Zealand dollars drifted lower on Wednesday, trimming overnight gains in an absence of major economic data and as investors were reluctant to take aggressive positions a day ahead of key Australian employment figures.
