TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar held gains against its peers on Wednesday, buoyed by better-than-expected data, while the Aussie took a knock after Australia’s economic growth slowed last quarter.

The Australian dollar slipped nearly 0.7 percent to a two-month low of $0.7035 as data earlier in the day reinforced recent evidence of slowing domestic momentum and backed market expectations for a rate cut this year.

Economic growth came in at a disappointing 0.2 percent in the fourth quarter, below an expected 0.3 percent, an outcome sure to keep the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) on heightened watch after it abandoned its long-held tightening bias last month.
