The Australian dollar has lost ground after a rally sparked by strong Chinese trade figures lost steam.
At 0630 AEDT on Thursday, the local unit was trading at 90.30 US cents, down from 90.64 cents on Wednesday.
The Australian dollar finished Wednesday's local session on new one-month high after China's trade surplus surged to China's trade surplus surged in January.
China's trade surplus rose 14.0 per cent year-on-year in January to $US31.86 billion ($A35.35 billion), rebounding from a decline the previous month as exports jumped more than expected.
Exports increased 10.6 per cent to $US207.13 billion, while imports were up 10.0 per cent at $US175.27 billion, the General Administration of Customs said on Wednesday.
