SYDNEY, May 6 (Reuters) - The Australian dollar slipped a quarter of a U.S. cent on Monday following a surprise fall in retail sales in March, encouraging markets to narrow the odds of further easing by the Reserve Bank of Australia later this week.
The Aussie fell to a session low of $1.0270 and was last trading at $1.0285.
