The U.S. dollar traded higher against the most major currencies. The greenback remained supported by yesterday's U.S. new home sales. New home sales in the U.S. rose 18.0% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 504,000 units in August, up from 427,000 units in July. That was the highest level since May 2008.
The New Zealand dollar dropped against the U.S. dollar after comments by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) Governor Graeme Wheeler. He said that the kiwi was still "unjustifiably high".
Wheeler warned the strength of the New Zealand dollar was "unjustified and unsustainable".
The RBNZ governor noted when the kiwi declines from an unjustified and unsustainable level, the downward adjustment can be large.
The Australian dollar fell against the U.S. dollar, following the New Zealand dollar.
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Governor Glenn Stevens said at an economic forum in Melbourne that he was open to restrictions on home lending to investors, but he said he didn't consider macroprudential tools.
Stevens supported more economy risk taking.
