Most major currencies were handing in a muted performance in Asia on Wednesday, although the Japanese yen was a standout performer.
The yen was up 0.2 per cent to ¥111.26 per dollar, peeling off Monday’s one-month low.
The pound was flat at $1.2631 in Asia after a 0.9 per cent drop on Tuesday when Mark Carney, Bank of England governor, took a more dovish stance in commentary about interest rates.
The dollar index, a measure of the US currency against a basket of global peers, was flat at 97.743.
The Australian dollar was down 0.1 per cent at $0.7573 and eyeing a third straight day of declines in the wake of weaker commodity prices.
