The U.S. dollar fell against the Antipodean currencies and the British pound after surprising improvement in U.S. labor market data bolstered expectations for economic recovery, which reduced safe-harbor demand for the greenback.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars both rose to their strongest since January after data showed a smaller-than-expected fall in Chinese exports, which supports commodity currencies.
