AUD/USD: The Australian dollar was picking up the pieces on Thursday after a torrent of automated selling against the yen sent it plunging to multi-year lows on a host of major currencies. The Aussie suffered some of the largest intra-day falls in its history amid a drought of liquidity and a cascade of computerized sales. At one point it was down 5 percent on the yen and almost 4 percent on the U.S. dollar, before clawing back much of the losses as trading calmed and humans took charge. The pair made intraday high at $0.6985 and low at $0.6744 levels.

NZD/USD: The kiwi falls noticeably against U.S. dollar and touched $0.6587 mark in early Asia hours. For the full year, the kiwi stumbled 5.4 percent for its worst annual performance since 2015.
