Aust dollar recovers in early trade

Local currency stabilises after slumping on Stevens' hints at further easing.

The Australian dollar lost almost two US cents on Tuesday after the release of weak building approvals data and hints from Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens about a cash rate cut next week.
