NEW YORK ( BBH FX Strategy) -- The U.S. dollar is trading within Monday's ranges against the major foreign currencies Tuesday. The main exception is the Australian dollar, where the central bank kept rates on hold, but encouraged the market to look for a rate cut next month.The unwinding of long AUD cross positions helped lift the yen after the Bank of Japan reported the first decline in its monetary base in three years. The dollar fell to its lowest level against the yen in nearly a month, with reported purchases by Japanese importers helping to steady the greenback near JPY81.50. This, in turn, helped the other main yen crosses recover from earlier losses.
