Greenback drops against yen
On Tuesday, the evergreen buck tumbled against the Japanese yen, while the New Zealand dollar went up right after the country’s major financial institution informed that they don’t see the necessity for a rapid succession of interest rate drops.
The evergreen buck lost 0.1% to 100.220 against the safe-haven Japanese yen amid a pullback in Tokyo shares.
The greenback had soared to nearly 101.00 yen overnight, reacting to hawkish-sounding comments by Federal Reserve Vice Chair Stanley Fischer.
The euro grew 0.1% to $1.1332, thus stepping off an overnight minimum of $1.1271.
The Australian dollar ascended 0.1%, being worth $0.7638 , moving up on the coattails of the New Zealand dollar.
The New Zealand dollar appeared to be a relatively big mover in a subdued Asian trading session.
The New Zealand dollar earned 0.6%, being worth $0.7308 after Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Graeme Wheeler informed that the current interest rate track suggests further monetary easing, although he didn’t see the need for an instant series of rate drops.
