The Australian dollar slipped on Tuesday after the central bank held interest rates steady, while the greenback regained some of the ground lost when data showed a slump in US manufacturing activity.
The Aussie fell as much as 0.4 percent following the decision and was last 0.3 percent lower at $0.6766. Sterling was last 0.05 percent lower at $1.2410.
The kiwi rose 0.2 percent to $0.6310, its highest since mid-February, and last stood at $0.6301.
The euro fell 0.11 percent to $1.0891. Against the Japanese yen, the dollar rose 0.29 percent to 132.84.
Against a basket of currencies, the US dollar index rose 0.17 percent to 102.20, reversing some of Monday’s more than 0.5 percent fall. (QNA)
