Dollar Slips as Exporter Currencies Find Relief After Oil Rout

  • Norwegian krone, Brazil's real lead gains versus greenback
  • Kiwi advances on inflation outlook even as RBNZ cuts rates

The dollar fell for the first time in four days as a commodity selloff moderated, boosting the currencies of some resource-exporting nations.

Norway’s krone jumped from its lowest in more than 13 years, while the Colombian peso climbed from record lows. The Brazilian real rose to its highest since Nov. 25. New Zealand’s dollar surged after the central bank said it expects rates to be low enough to meet its inflation target, after cutting them to a record.
