The pound was little changed before U.K. elections on Thursday and Australia's dollar rose after the nation's unemployment rate remained below its peak.
The dollar was less than 0.4 percent from a three-month low amid concern a U.S. payroll report on Friday will add to signs the world's biggest economy is slowing. A gauge of the greenback is set for a four-week decline, its worst losing streak since 2013, as investors wait for more clues on the U.S. economy's direction and the Fed's ability to raise interest rates this year.
