The greenback traded weaker against its major peers in Asian trade but continues to be supported by the FED's decision not to raise interest rates before April 2015 while other major countries are likely to maintain monetary stimulus. The U.S. dollar lost against the euro after rising to USD1.2219, the highest since August 2012. Today markets await data on Eurozone's Consumer Confidence and U.S. Existing Home Sales.

The Australian dollar booked gains against the U.S. dollar after last week's slump on Wednesday with new lows at USD0.8106, the weakest since 2010.
