- The Aussie fell after Australia's central bank held steady as expected in its latest interest rate decision on Tuesday as investors detected tones of a more neutral bias and with investors cautious ahead of a meeting this week between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Florida expected to be contentious on trade.
-AUD/USD traded down 0.34% to 0.7580, while USD/JPY changed hands at 110.43, down 0.42%. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, eased 0.04% to 100.32.
-Gold drifted higher in Asia on Tuesday in cautious trade with China and India markets shut for holidays, putting the world's top gold importers on the sidelines, and with investors cautious ahead of a meeting this week between U.S. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping in Florida seen as high stakes on trade and geopolitical tensions in Asia.
-Gold gained 0.35% to $1,258.45 a troy ounce.
