Recession fears dampened investors’ sentiment, driving flows away from the risk-sensitive aussie.

Investors preferred to wait for Fed Chair Jerome Powell's speech at the ECB forum in Sintra.
Powell's comments would be watched for clues about the Fed's policy outlook, which would provide a fresh impetus to the pair.
