Aussie and Kiwi are at 4-month peaks vs. weaker US dollar

On Monday, the Australian and New Zealand dollars were keeping to four-month maximums versus their American rival because the broadly stronger common currency kept weighing heavily on the US currency notwithstanding Friday's mostly positive American data.

The currency pair AUD/USD tacked on 0.34% hitting 0.7944, which is the highest value since September.

The common currency strengthened broadly because Thursday’s minutes of the European Central Bank’s December gathering told that officials could move to a gradual shift in policy guidance from the first quarter 2018.

Any changes to the ECB’s guidance would probably be considered by market participants as a sign that policymakers are ready to start winding down their bond purchasing stimulus program.

The greenback neglected Friday’s data showing that underlying American consumer prices reported their largest leap for 11 months in December, thus contributing to hopes that inflation will step up in 2018.

The currency pair NZD/USD gained 0.28% to 0.7268.
