The Australian dollar extended its losses after a preliminary survey of China's manufacturing sector showed growth slowing to a three-month low. The dollar index .DXY, still basking in the afterglow of Tuesday's upbeat U.S. housing data, climbed as far as 82.358, reaching a high not seen since early September. It has broken clear of the 81.188/81.716 range held for much of this month. The minutes showed policymakers debated on whether interest rates should be raised earlier given a surprisingly strong jobs market recovery. Most officials, however, wanted further evidence before changing their view on when rates should be lifted. In any case, it was enough to send U.S. Treasury yields higher with the two-year US2YT=RR note hitting a two-week high just shy of 0.5 percent. That in turn helped underpin the greenback, which rose to its highest in over four months against the yen at 103.965 JPY=, not far from the April peak of 104.13. A break there could see the market aim for the 2014 high of 105.45 set in January. More»

The dollar steadied on Tuesday after Monday's gains on upbeat U.S. housing data and a rise in U.S. bond yields, but traders are waiting for hints on Federal Reserve policy intentions before they test major resistance levels. The only mover among major currencies in Asia was the New Zealand dollar, which shed a half percentage point after soft economic data pointed to a pause in the country's rate hikes. The U.S. dollar index stood flat at 81.612 .DXY =USD, after a gain of 0.2 percent on Monday, lacking the momentum to test its 11-month high of 81.716 hit earlier this month. "The housing data seems to have had an impact on the dollar. Yet the market is still showing no clear direction yet and I see dollar-selling orders above current levels. It seems better to play ranges," said Bart Wakabayashi, head of currencies at State Street in Tokyo. The NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market index rose unexpectedly for the third straight monthly gain to a seven-month high of 55 in August, shrugging off the weakness of early this year. More»

The dollar edged down against a basket of currencies on Monday, as U.S. Treasury yields wallowed close to 16-month lows and made the greenback less attractive. Sterling rose after the Bank of England indicated that UK interest rates may have to rise even before wage growth recovers, backtracking from earlier comments that prompted markets to push out the risk of a rate hike. But the U.S. dollar, euro and yen were little changed from their levels late in New York on Friday, where heightened tensions in Ukraine drove global bond yields to fresh lows. The euro last traded at $1.3397 EUR=, flat on the day and well within a slim $1.3333-$1.3445 range seen so far this month. Against the yen, the common currency edged down slightly to 136.05 EURJPY=R.

The yen held steady versus the dollar on Wednesday, showing limited reaction to the widely expected contraction in Japan's economy in April-June, while the euro hovered above the previous day's lows. Japan's economy shrank an annualised 6.8 percent in the second quarter, suffering its biggest contraction since the devastating March 2011 earthquake as a sales tax hike took a heavy toll on household spending. The annualised contraction in gross domestic product, however, was slightly less than a median market forecast for a 7.1 percent drop. The yen showed limited reaction to the data, which was broadly in line with market expectations. The dollar was flat on the day near 102.30 yen JPY=, having traded between 103.15 yen and 101.51 yen over the past couple of weeks. "Overall the contents weren't enough to increase the possibility of additional BOJ monetary easing or to lower the economic outlook for July-September onwards," said Shinichiro Kadota, chief Japan FX strategist at Barclays Bank in Tokyo.

The dollar edged higher in Asia on Tuesday, getting a slight lift as U.S. Treasury yields inched away from recent lows, though concerns over rising tensions in Ukraine and the Middle East still looked set to cap the greenback's advance. The dollar index rose about 0.1 percent to 81.519 .DXY. Traders said the index was looking toppish as last month's rally swept it past a succession of 2014 peaks, and the market would probably need fresh impetus to push it further. U.S. Treasury yields pulled slightly away from recent lows, with the yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note US10YT=RR at 2.431 percent in Asia, above its U.S. close of 2.420 percent on Monday. On Friday, it fell to 2.349 percent, a level not seen since June 2013. The safe-haven yen stayed off highs notched late last week when concerns over geopolitical tensions were more acute. The euro was steady on the day at 136.79 yen EURJPY=R, well off a trough of 135.73 yen plumbed on Friday, which was its lowest level since November. More»

The yen eased versus the dollar on Monday, having backed off from peaks hit late last week as a slight relaxation in geopolitical tensions dampened demand for the safe-haven Japanese currency. The dollar inched up 0.1 percent to 102.17 yen JPY=, having bounced off Friday's two-week trough of 101.51. The euro edged up 0.1 percent to 136.91 yen EURJPY=R, well off an 8-1/2 month low of 135.73 set on Friday. News on Friday that Russia was ending military drills near the Ukrainian border helped U.S. stocks .SPX post their best one-day gain since March. Asian shares .MIAPJ0000PUS were last up 0.9 percent, regaining some footing after having suffered their biggest weekly fall in nearly five months last week .MIAPJ0000PUS. In a further boost to risk sentiment, Israel and the Palestinians agreed on Sunday to an Egyptian proposal for a new 72-hour ceasefire in Gaza starting at 5 p.m. EDT. "The conclusions from the weekend are that conflicts are cooling, and the risk-off events of the past two weeks may see upside risk as de-escalation spreads across the conflicts," said Evan Lucas, strategist at IG in Melbourne.

The euro held steady above a nine-month low on Thursday ahead of a policy review by the European Central Bank, while the Aussie dollar tumbled after surprisingly weak Australian jobs data. The Australian dollar slid 0.8 percent to $0.9284 AUD=D4, nearing a two-month low of $0.9275 set last week. Although the Australian dollar will probably find some support at the early August trough of $0.9275, it is likely to head lower eventually, said Jeffrey Halley, FX trader for Saxo Capital Markets in Singapore."I think the U.S. dollar is strong, and the data coming out of Australia hasn't been great," he said. The Aussie dollar took a hit from surprisingly weak Australian jobs data, which showed that the jobless rate jumped to a 12-year high of 6.4 percent in July, a disappointing report that could revive speculation about another cut in interest rates.

The dollar stayed strong and U.S. bond yields held firm on Thursday after data showed solid U.S. economic growth, even as the Federal Reserve repeated its message that it is in no hurry to raise interest rates. While the prospect of a solid U.S. recovery underpinned equities, many Asian shares slipped on profit-taking after making hefty gains since the middle of this month.MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dipped 0.3 percent but held still not far from 6 1/2-year high hit on Wednesday. The Nikkei average rose 0.3 percent while Australian shares inched up to hit six-year highs. European shares are expected to open slightly firmer, with France's CAC40 seen rising up to 0.3 percent and Britain's FTSE 0.1 percent. More»

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»
