Asian session: The dollar was near a two-week high

00:30 Australia Private Capital Expenditure Quarter IV +3.6% -1.0% -5.2%


The dollar was near a two-week high against a basket of its major peers before Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen speaks today amid prospects the central bank will continue to scale down its bond purchases. Yellen said this month the economy has strengthened enough to withstand cuts to monetary stimulus, adding that only a notable change to the outlook would prompt the Fed to slow the pace of tapering its bond purchases. She is scheduled to testify before the Senate Banking Committee today after it was postponed on Feb. 13 owing to a snow storm.

In the U.S., purchases of new homes gained 9.6 percent last month, exceeding the highest estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg, figures from the Commerce Department showed. Data due today may show jobless claims fell last week by 1,000 while a decline in durable goods orders eased to 1.7 percent in January from 4.2 percent the prior month, economists forecast.

Australia’s currency dropped after business investment fell the most in four years. Capital spending decreased 5.2 percent in the fourth quarter, the most since September 2009, the Bureau of Statistics said in Sydney today.
