Aussie, kiwi higher against generally weaker greenback

Australian and New Zealand dollars

The Australian and New Zealand dollars were higher on Thursday, as sentiment on the greenback remained vulnerable amid U.S. political concerns and after upbeat New Zealand business confidence data.

AUD/USD gained 0.33% to 0.7664, the highest since March 30.

The greenback remained under pressure after U.S. Senate Republicans postponed a vote on the Trump administration’s healthcare bill on Tuesday, as they faced resistance from party members.
