The Australian dollar is on the back foot as its US counterpart continued to benefit from the trade truce with Mexico, even as Washington kept up the war of words with China.

The Aussie was pinned at 69.56 US cents on Tuesday, having lost 0.6 per cent on Monday in the wake of the trade truce with Mexico.

It had reached as high as 70.25 US cents at one stage before retreating.

President Donald Trump's decision not to impose tariffs on Mexico was taken as lessening the risk of recession in the United States and lifted 10-year Treasury yields up to 2.15 per cent from a two month low of 2.05 per cent.

Trump did not sound so conciliatory toward China, however, threatening another round of tariffs if no progress was made on trade at a Group of 20 summit later this month.

China is Australia's single largest export market and investors use the Aussie as a liquid proxy for positions on its economic outlook.

The Aussie has troubles of its own as a survey of Australian business showed activity faltered in May even as confidence got a rare boost.

The Reserve Bank of Australia has already cut interest rates to a record low of 1.25 per cent and markets imply around an 86 per cent probability of a further reduction by August.

Upbeat US Data, Hawkish FOMC Minutes to Hurt Aussie Amid Risk Aversion. Another quiet week on the Australian economic data front keeps the spotlight on external factors, with the evolving outlook for Federal Reserve monetary policy in focus. A central theme driving markets since the beginning of

"Today's survey again suggests increased risk that the unemployment rate will not make the further gains the RBA expects and strongly argues the case for further near-term easing in monetary policy," said Ivan Colhoun, NAB's chief economist, markets.

"A weak outcome for unemployment would likely cement a July cut," he added, referring to the official jobs report for May which is due on Thursday.

Median forecasts are that employment rose a solid 17,500 in May, nudging the jobless rate down a tick to 5.1 per cent - an outcome that would likely lessen the urgency for a rate cut as early as July.

Australian government bond futures were lower on Tuesday as risk appetite globally got a boost from the US-Mexico trade news. The three-year bond contract fell 2.5 ticks to 98.920, while the 10-year contract slipped 3.0 ticks to 98.5100.
