Aussie Falls to Lowest Level Since Dec. 1 Versus U.S. Currency

October 03, 2011

Oct. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Australia’s dollar weakened to the lowest this year against its U.S. counterpart as European debt concerns and declines in Asian shares curbed demand for higher- yielding assets.

The so-called Aussie slid to as low as 95.96 U.S. cents as of 12:57 p.m. in Tokyo, the least since Dec. 1, 2010, from 96.62 cents last week.
