The U.S. dollar traded lower against its major peers after the speech by the Fed Chair Janet Yellen. Yellen testified before the Senate Banking Committee in Washington on Tuesday. She said it is unlikely that the Fed will raise its interest rate in "the next couple of FOMC meetings" as wage growth remains too low even as the job market improves. The Fed Chair noted that the central bank will change the wording of the policy statement when it will raise its interest rate and that the FED will not rush into raising interest rates.

The euro traded moderately higher against the greenback after Eurozone's finance ministers approved the four-month bailout extension on Tuesday and accepted the list of reforms proposed by the Greek government.

Both input and output prices remain in contraction, according to HSBC.China is Australia's biggest trade partner. Construction Work Done for the fourth quarter decreased less than expected by -0.2% compared to a forecast of -0.8% and a previous reading of -2.8% (revised from -2.2%).

Year on year the Wage Price Index declined from +2.6% to +2.5% in line with expectations.
