00:30 Australia RBA Meeting's Minutes

The U.S. dollar traded flat to lower against the most major currencies as recent disappointing U.S. data on retail sales and the Michigan consumer sentiment continued to weigh. Yesterday U.S. markets were closed for President's holiday. Today the greenback traded flat against the euro after yesterday's gains as talks between Greece and the Eurozone's finance ministers broke down yesterday as Athens did not accept a proposal for a six-month extension of its bailout. Now the Greek government has until Friday to request the extension. If Greece chooses not to do so the bailout will expire at the end of February.

The Australian dollar traded stronger on Tuesday after the minutes of the RBA meeting were published. The bank named a lower growth and inflation outlook and Chinese demand for commodities as reasons for this month's decision to lower interest rates after a 17-month pause. Recently the unemployment rate in Australia rose to a 12 ½ year high. Australia's economy is struggling as prices for key export commodities slumped and demand in China, Australia's biggest trade partner, is declining.

New Zealand's dollar advanced for a fourth day against the greenback in Asian trade with no major economic data published.

The Japanese yen traded almost flat against the greenback on Tuesday after Asia's second largest economy exited recession in the final quarter of last year according to data published over the weekend although growth was weaker than expected. Last week the yen rose as insiders said the BoJ sees further monetary easing as counterproductive for now as more stimulus would further hurt the currency. Now all eyes are on BoJ Governor Kuroda's speech scheduled for Wednesday.

EUR/USD: the euro traded slightly stronger against the greenback

USD/JPY: the U.S. dollar traded flat against the yen

GPB/USD: Sterling traded flat against the U.S. dollar
