However, dollar met renewed selling there and fell at Tokyo open to 111.25 after tripping stops below yesterday's 111.30 low together with initial retreat in Nikkei-225 index.

Market focus is now on the Federal Reserve's rate decision, as they commence their 2-day FOMC meeting today. Although no change to the rate is expected, traders are looking for the language used by the central bank in regards to its forward guidance after recent releases of soft U.S. data.

Policy makers expect a further fall in the unemployment rate to around 4.75 percent, which would lead to a gradual pick up in wages. 
 
The unpredictability around how consumers would react to potential further losses in housing prices led the RBA to downgrade its forecasts for growth through 2021 while expecting an even slower pick-up in inflation. 
 
That also led the RBA to shift away from its long-held tightening bias to bring rate cuts back on the table. The minutes showed the risk for interest rates to go in either direction was "evenly balanced".

The Board also saw a risk of a "marked slowing" in home building in the next year or two unless pre-sales picked up significantly. 
 
Fears negative wealth effects from housing would take a toll on the wider economy explains why the RBA is so focused on the resilience of employment. 
"Members agreed that development in the labour market were particularly important," the minutes showed. 
 
"There continued to be considerable uncertainty around the outlook for consumption given the environment of declining housing prices in some cities, low growth in household income and high debt levels." 
 
19 Mar 2019 00:32 AUD/USD - 0.7097... Reuters reported Australia's central bank was looking to strike a balance between the damaging effects of crumbling home prices on consumer spending against a sturdy labour market when it left interest rates at a record low earlier this month. 
 
Minutes of the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) March policy meeting showed members spent considerable time discussing the fall in the supply and demand for home loans and the implications of cooling housing prices on the country's economy. 
 
Members assessed that reduced demand from borrowers, particularly property investors, largely explained the credit slowdown. Members also noted the recent weakness in household consumption, with cars sales especially hit by nosediving property prices.
