Dollar up on positive economic outlook, policy divergence

NEW YORK, Dec 3 (Reuters) – The U.S. dollar demonstrated
broad-based strength on Wednesday, bolstered by more upbeat
comments on the U.S. economy by a Federal Reserve official ahead
of a European Central Bank meeting that may result in more
monetary easing measures.

The euro fell to a fresh 27-month low, the dollar
strengthened toward 120 yen and the U.S. dollar index, which
measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, hit its
highest level in over 5-1/2 years.
