00:30 Australia Leading Index June +0.8% +0.5%

 

The dollar gained versus most major peers before data that may show an improving U.S. housing market, damping prospects the Federal Reserve will start a third round of asset purchases, or quantitative easing. Sales of existing homes in the U.S. probably climbed to a 4.51 million annual rate last month from a 4.37 million pace in June, according to the median estimate of economists in a Bloomberg News survey before today’s report from the National Association of Realtors.

Demand for the greenback was supported before the U.S. central bank releases today minutes of its most recent meeting. The Fed will release records of its two-day meeting concluded on Aug. 1, when officials refrained from adding new stimulus measures that tend to debase the greenback.

The yen rose against the Australian and New Zealand dollars as Asian stocks declined.
