The Australian dollar has rebounded, recovering from losses following the release of disappointing jobs data last week.

The Australian dollar fell from a three-month high of 93.54 US cents to 92.29 immediately after the release of the labour force figures on Thursday, which showed the national unemployment rate reached a four-year high of 5.8% in August.
