A small bounce in the greenback early in Asia on Wednesday after another decline on Tuesday, AUD and NZD bother lower as a result. AUD has shed around 6 pips with focus on Westpac Consumer Confidence at the bottom of the hour, while Wage Price Index data at 02030BST/1130AEST has the potential to be a market mover.
- NZD is around 10 pips lower, data earlier showed Q1 producer output prices rose 1.2% Q/Q, while producer input prices rose 2.1% Q/Q. Elsewhere GDT price index & whole milk powder price index both fell just 0.2% in the latest auction. It was the fourth auction which saw the index remain little changed.
- JPY is slightly softer but more resilient than its regional peers. USD/JPY up 2 pips. NHK reported earlier that a safety lapse was found at TEPCO's Fukushima Daini plant. Markets await final March industrial output later in the session.
