The euro traded mixed against the U.S. dollar as tensions between Russia and Ukraine eased. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's office said that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko agreed on a "permanent ceasefire". Russia denied that it had agreed to the ceasefire because Russia isn't a party in the conflict. But Russia and Ukraine discuss how to resolve the conflict.

The speculation that the European Central Bank (ECB) will add further stimulus measures also supported the euro. The ECB will released its interest rate decision on Thursday.

Retail sales in the Eurozone fell 0.4% in July, missing expectations for a 0.3% decline, after a 0.3% increase in June. June's figure was revised down from a 0.4% rise.

The Canadian dollar increased against the U.S. dollar after the Bank of Canada's interest rate decision. The BoC kept its interest rate unchanged at 1.00%. This decision was widely expected by analysts.

The New Zealand dollar traded mixed against the U.S dollar in the absence of any major economic reports from New Zealand. Yesterday's better-than-expected ISM manufacturing purchasing managers' index in the U.S. and a drop in dairy product prices weighed on the kiwi. Dairy prices have fallen nearly 45% since February.

The Australian dollar rose against the U.S. dollar after the better-than-expected economic growth in Australia and after comments by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Governor Glenn Stevens.

The Australian Industry Group's performance of services index rose to 49.4 in August from 49.3 in July.
