NZD/USD rallied to a nearly 1-month high of 0.8155 after the RBNZ left rates unchanged as Governor Wheeler said rate increases "will likely be required next year". On the other hand, the Australian dollar pulled back from 3-month highs back below 0.9300 after soft domestic jobs data.

Elsewhere, majors continue to consolidate, with EUR/USD a touch weaker around 1.3300 and GBP/USD hovering over 1.5800. The USD/JPY extended its pullback into a second day, sliding toward 99.19 as traders grew cautious ahead of the upcoming FOMC meeting.
