Aussie Dollar Drops as Battellino Says Weaker Currency May Help

December 13, 2011

Dec. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Australian dollar dropped as Reserve Bank of Australia Deputy Governor Ric Battellino said a likely fall in the currency will help insulate the nation from an economic slump in Europe, where a “disruptive event” can’t be ruled out.

The so-called Aussie slid 0.3 percent to 99.88 U.S. cents at 12:40 p.m. in Sydney from yesterday in New York.
