The Australian dollar rose to its highest point in almost a month, helped by an upbeat business survey and by buying from hedge funds, who have been betting against the Aussie for months but who are now taking profits, said traders. Volumes were low due to a holiday in Japan and a lack of major economic data, holding most currencies inside recent ranges. Investors' focus on Tuesday will be Yellen, who faces her first public test as chair of the world's most powerful central bank. She will have to deal with questions from US lawmakers, some hostile to the central bank, who will want to know how committed she ...

Euro dips as Germany refers ECB's bond-buy plan LONDON: The euro dipped against the dollar on Friday after Germany's Constitutional Court criticised the European Central Bank's bond-buying programme. Traders said the court's objections to the scheme, which has underpinned the euro over the past two years, had jarred the single currency. But by referring the issue to the European Court, the court also removed prospects that Germany might try to curb the programme, which helped limit the single currency's decline. "The euro fell, ...
