The Australian dollar fell slightly after the central bank kept the cash rate on hold at three per cent at its February board meeting.

The decision to keep the cash rate unchanged was in line the majority of economists' expectations.

The currency was trading at 104.43 US cents at 1429 AEDT, just before the Reserve Bank of Australia's decision was announced, and fell to 104.23 US cents by 1438 AEDT.

The dollar finished Monday's local session at 104.37 US cents.
