The dollar clung to modest gains on Wednesday after bulls latched on to a comment by Federal Reserve head Janet Yellen that rates could rise sooner if employment continued to improve. The Australian dollar, meanwhile, couldn't sustain a short-lived blip higher on better-than-expected Chinese growth data and it slumped as its New Zealand counterpart spiraled lower after benign domestic price data. China's economy grew slightly faster than expected in the second quarter, bolstered by a burst of government stimulus. The dollar index was last at 80.444, up about 0.1 percent on the day. The greenback was up about 0.1 percent at 101.74 yen after touching a one-week high of 101.77. "Below the 101 yen figure, there are pure commercial orders from (Japanese) importers, but the upside is still capped," said Kaneo Ogino, director at Global-info Co. in Tokyo, a foreign exchange research firm. "People are just waiting for the next trigger event," he said. Speaking to a Senate committee on Tuesday, Yellen defended the U.S. central bank's loose monetary policy settings, saying the economic recovery was not yet complete. More»

The dollar remained steady against the yen during Asian trading Tuesday after the Bank of Japan stood pat on policy following its two-day meeting. Market participants will now be focusing on BOJ Gov. Haruhiko Kuroda’s news conference from 0630 GMT and Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen’s testimony later in the global day. The BOJ slightly cut its growth outlook in a new projection, but kept its policy on hold and maintained a bullish consumer-price forecast, suggesting officials feel little urgency to add to their aggressive stimulus measures. “I don’t think we should be expecting any change in Mr. Kuroda’s stance at his news conference,” said Junichi Ishikawa, market analyst at IG Securities. He tipped the greenback to stay in a ¥101.20-¥101.85 range for the rest of the Asian trading day. The dollar most recently traded at ¥101.59 from ¥101.55 late New York trading Monday. More»

The dollar edged up slightly against its Japanese counterpart on Monday though major currency pairs largely stuck close to recent ranges, as investors awaited events this week including Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's congressional testimony for cues on the outlook for U.S. monetary policy. A batch of Chinese economic data on Wednesday and earnings results from major global banks this week kept investors wary, and gave them little incentive to take new positions. Investors also awaited a policy review by the Bank of Japan on Tuesday, though the central bank was widely expected to maintain its policy and its broader economic outlook. The BOJ next week may trim its economic growth forecast for the current year, sources familiar with its thinking said, reflecting soft exports and a bigger-than-expected slump in household spending after a sales tax hike in April, though the change would not tip any policy changes to come.

The U.S. dollar was stable against the yen and the euro on Friday as Portugal’s largest bank sought to reassure investors about its financial stability. Banco Espirito Santo said on Thursday night that loan losses to the troubled empire of its founding family would not put the bank at risk of running short of capital. That eased some concerns. The dollar weakened to nearly two-month lows against the yen on Thursday as investors worried about contagion and sought out safe haven investments. “It put concerns in the market about European growth and the bank sector,” said Mark McCormick, a macro strategist at Credit Agricole in New York. “A lot of the concerns were idiosyncratic.” The dollar was steady at 101.33 yen and little changed against the euro at $1.3609. It rose 0.07 percent against a broad basket of currencies to 80.185, according to the dollar index. More»

The dollar traded around one-week lows against a basket of major currencies on Thursday, coming under pressure after minutes of the Federal Reserve's June meeting gave no clear indication about the timing of any interest rate rise. The Australian dollar, meanwhile, slipped after a rise in the country's jobless rate raised concern about its stalled economy and stoked expectations that interest rates may remain on hold for months to come. The Fed minutes confirmed that the U.S. central bank's monthly bond purchases would probably end in October and showed that policymakers debated the complexities of unwinding a stimulus program that has flooded the financial system with over $2 trillion. The uncertain outlook for the timing of the Fed's move has kept major currencies in relatively tight ranges in recent weeks. "The Fed is driving the station wagon right now, with everybody in the back. We're expecting rates to go higher, and there are side bets on when that might happen," said Bart Wakabayashi, head of forex at State Street Global Markets in Tokyo. More»

The dollar held steady versus a basket of major currencies on Tuesday, having retreated from the previous day's near-two-week high, giving the euro a chance to get over an unexpected slump in German industrial output. The dollar index was at 80.233, off a 1-1/2-week peak at 80.359 set on Monday. Still, it managed to hold on to most of the gains made in the wake of solid payrolls data on Thursday. The greenback's lacklustre performance came as U.S. Treasury yields slipped from recent highs after Wall Street turned cautious ahead of the second-quarter earnings season starting this week. That helped support the euro, which held steady at $1.3605, having bounced from a low of $1.3576 on Monday when an unexpectedly big fall in German industrial output unsettled the common European currency.

The dollar edged higher on Monday and touched its highest level in more than a week versus a basket of major currencies, staying on firm footing in the wake of last week's solid U.S. jobs data. The dollar index rose 0.2 percent to 80.340. It touched a high of 80.351 earlier on Monday, its highest level since June 26. The greenback held steady versus the yen near 102.14 yen, after having risen 0.7 percent last week. "It wouldn't be surprising to see a rise toward 102.50 yen," said Bart Wakabayashi, head of foreign exchange for State Street Global Markets in Tokyo, referring to the near-term outlook for the dollar against the yen. "But if you ask whether we will see a new trend, that probably won't be the case," he added. More»

The euro held near a six-week high against the dollar on Tuesday, threatening a break past $1.37 that could quickly see it back at levels expected to provoke at least a verbal response from the European Central Bank. Dealers said there was strong support for the euro around its 55-day moving average at $1.3698 and it retreated after touching that level overnight. A number of analysts from the global financial system's biggest banks have returned to arguing in recent weeks that the dollar is on the verge of a push higher, given the prospect of rises in U.S. interest rates sometime next year. But the greenback disappointed heavily on similar bets at the start of this year and there is little sign yet of a move higher. The euro has recovered all of the ground lost since the ECB announced a new round of monetary easing a month ago. "I'm not sure we're quite at that level yet, but above $1.38 I think might put it back on the bank's radar," said Ian Stannard, a currency strategist with U.S. bank Morgan Stanley in London. "$1.37 is the top of the recent range so I wouldn't be surprised if there are big stops around there." Dealers pointed to a large option taken last month that would be triggered by a break above $1.37. More»

The U.S. dollar wallowed at its lowest in nearly two weeks against a basket of major currencies on Thursday, in the wake of the Federal Reserve's cue that U.S. interest rates will stay low for a while. The New Zealand dollar soared to a record high against a basket of currencies after the Fed's dovish stance. New projections suggested the Fed saw rates rising more in 2015 and 2016 than it had previously forecast, but officials lowered their long-term rate target. The Fed also sounded comfortable with the inflation outlook despite recent signs of a pick-up in price pressure. Fed chief Janet Yellen said there had been "a slight decline of projections pertaining to longer-term growth" that prompted Fed officials to lower their view of the expected long-term federal funds rate from 4 percent to 3.75 percent. As a result, U.S. Treasury yields fell, with the benchmark 10-year rate US10YT=RR dropping to 2.579 percent in Asia from its U.S. close of 2.615 percent. "We're seeing broad extension of the U.S. dollar weakness," said Sue Trinh, currency strategist at RBC Capital Markets. More»

The dollar held firm with higher Treasury yields on Wednesday after a surprisingly high reading for U.S. inflation threatened to give a hawkish tilt to the Federal Reserve's policy outlook later in the session. The risk was more than enough to keep most Asian share markets on the defensive with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan off 0.2 percent. Japan's Nikkei stood out with a rise of 0.93 percent as a softer yen helped offset disappointing trade numbers. Data out of China showed home prices there fell in May for the first time in two years, but analysts were divided on whether this was a welcome cool down in an overheated sector or the start of something more serious. The U.S. Fed's two-day policy meeting ends with a statement at 1800 GMT, followed half an hour later by a news conference with Chair Janet Yellen. The central bank will also provide its latest forecasts for growth, inflation and interest rates. While economic growth has disappointed so far this year, signs of an acceleration in inflation could bring forward the day when the Fed might consider hiking rates. The U.S. consumer price index increased 0.4 percent in May, twice the gain expected, driven in large part by rising airfares and hotel rates. Core inflation rose 0.3 percent in the biggest monthly rise since late 2009. More»
