Dollar firms in cautious trade before Fed statement

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. dollar made a tepid advance against the euro and the Swiss franc on Wednesday but fell against the yen before a monetary policy statement from the Federal Reserve.

Economists polled by Reuters expect the Fed not to do anything that will deviate from a mid-year interest rate rise trajectory, even as U.S. corporations blame the recent rally in the dollar’s value for hitting corporate profits.

Dollar down on mixed U.S. data ahead of FOMC decision

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. dollar fell on Tuesday with currency strategists pointing toward a surprise drop in U.S. durable goods orders that is feeding into speculation the Federal Reserve might hold off on raising interest rates longer than currently expected.

Investors have bid the dollar higher in anticipation that the Fed will be raising interest rates around mid-year as the U.S. economy recovers its growth momentum at the same time major central banks in Europe and Japan are loosening policies to spur activity.

Euro rebounds off lows after Greek vote; rouble weakens

NEW YORK, Jan 26 (Reuters) – The euro rebounded on Monday as
investors took advantage of steep losses sustained during two
days of dramatic selling, with the final push down to a fresh
11-year low coming after elections in Greece put an
anti-austerity government in power.

Following the outcome of Sunday’s vote, the euro hit its
lowest against the U.S. dollar since September 2003 at $1.1098
in Asian trading, according to the EBS trading platform
. Greece elected, as expected, left-wing leader Alexis
Tsipras of the anti-bailout Syriza party.
