Aussie goes up on data, Kiwi is intact after Wheeler remarks

On Wednesday, the Australian rose versus the greenback, underpinned by the publication of upbeat Australian data. Meanwhile, the New Zealand dollar was intact reacting to remarks by Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Graeme Wheeler.

The currency pair AUD/USD rallied 0.34% being worth 0.7979, off a four-week maximum of 0.7996 overnight.

Earlier the Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that in July building approvals went down by just 1.7%, versus expectations for a 5 sag. In June, building approvals were updated to a 11.7% soar, rising from a previously estimated 10.9% jump.

A separate report revealed that in Australia construction work done inched up by 9.3% during the second quarter, surpassing hopes for a 1.0% revenue.

The currency pair NZD/USD stood intact at 0.7255.

The Kiwi inched down after RBNZ Governor Wheeler told that a lower New Zealand dollar was required to drive the export sector as well as inflation.
