The Australian dollar dropped against the USD, after a private survey showed China's factory activity shrank by the most for the past nearly three years.
The Australian currency, often considered a barometer of global risk appetite, fell 0.4 percent to $ 0.7246. The New Zealand dollar also fell 0.2 percent against the US dollar to $ 0.6907.
Reports of weak Chinese performance have raised concerns about global growth and put them at the forefront, which is likely to have a positive effect on "safe haven" currencies, such as the Japanese yen.
"The USD/JPY is expected to remain weak, given the Fed's decision, but more negative movement may be expected if there is a return of risk-off sentiment." The yen was stable at 108.8 after reaching the highest value for the last two weeks in the previous session.
The dollar index is stable at 95.60, but is expected to end the week in red after losing 0.6% of its value last week.
The broad expectation is the dollar to weaken in the year after the Federal Reserve warned of potential future interest rate hikes.
