The Australian and NZ dollars slipped against their major counterparts in the Asian session on Friday, as investors digested mixed economic data and earnings reports and awaited the Federal Reserve's monetary policy meeting for more clues about the pace of tightening in the period ahead.

Overnight data showed that the U.S. economy rebounded strongly in the third quarter, but it offered some evidence of a healthy slowdown that could have a positive impact on fighting inflation.

Although the Fed is expected to raise interest rate by 75 basis points in November, the possibility of a 50 basis point move in the subsequent meeting has risen.

Disappointing quarterly results from several big tech companies pointed to the impact of hawkish stance by the Fed.

The aussie eased to 94.25 against the yen, heading to pierce a 3-day low of 94.23 seen at 5:15 pm ET. On the downside, 92.00 is likely seen as its next support level.

The kiwi fell to 0.5809 against the greenback and 1.7124 against the euro, off its early multi-week highs of 0.5873 and 1.7009, respectively. The kiwi is poised to find support around 0.55 against the greenback and 1.74 against the euro.

The kiwi retreated to 85.31 against the yen, after rising to a 4-day high of 86.13 in early deals. Should the kiwi drops further, it may face support around the 80.5 level.
