Asian session: The yen and dollar held gains

01:30 Australia RBA Financial Stability Review September

05:00 Japan Small Business Confidence September 49.7 49.8


The yen and dollar held gains versus most major peers as stocks in Asia and the U.S. dropped amid concern over budget talks that risk a federal government shutdown, sparking demand for haven currencies. The U.S. Senate is set to hold a test vote today on legislation passed by the House of Representatives to cover federal spending through Dec. 15, and choke off funds for President Barack Obama’s health-care law. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said the Senate will pass a spending measure without defunding the health law, raising the prospect of the debate extending past a Sept. 30 deadline. The next fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

The greenback remained stronger before data forecast to show new home sales rebounded in August, a sign the housing market is beginning to adjust to a jump in financing costs. Purchases of new houses in the U.S. climbed 6.6 percent to a 420,000 annual rate in August after plunging in July by the most in three years, according to economists in a Bloomberg News survey before the Commerce Department data today. Even with the gain, the purchase pace would fall short of the average 448,000 rate in the first six months of the year.

Excluding the volatile transportation category, orders for durable goods in the U.S. rose 1 percent in August after falling 0.8 percent the prior month, according to a separate survey before today’s report.

The New Zealand dollar fell versus its 16 major peers after official data showed the nation’s trade deficit widened to NZ$1.2 billion ($989 million) in August, the biggest shortfall in five years.
