The dollar weakened against most of its 16 major counterparts as Asian stocks extended a global rally ahead of U.S. data that may show an improving job market, curbing demand for refuge assets. Applications for unemployment payments in the U.S. probably fell to 371,000 in the week ended Jan. 28 from 377,000 the previous week, according to the median estimate of economists in a Bloomberg News survey. The Labor Department will release the figures today.

The 17-nation euro held yesterday’s gain versus the greenback after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europe must be united in protecting stability in the currency.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars maintained two-day gains as Asian equities extended a global stocks rally, spurring investor appetite for higher- yielding assets.

Australia’s currency earlier reached a five-month high after a report showed the nation’s trade surplus increased, exceeding analyst projections. The so-called Aussie and kiwi also rose after data yesterday showed manufacturing in China and the U.S. expanded, while a similar European gauge topped an initial reading. Demand for New Zealand’s dollar was limited after whole-milk powder prices fell for the fourth-straight auction, according to Fonterra Cooperative Group Ltd. (FCG).


EUR/USD: during the Asian session the pair fell.

GBP/USD: during the Asian session the pair decreased.
