U.S. dollar drifts higher after May jobs report

NEW YORK, June 6 (Reuters) – The U.S. dollar recouped losses
Friday as investors added to a well-worn pattern of borrowing
greenbacks to buy higher-yielding currencies after solid U.S.
jobs data left little chance the Federal Reserve would speed up
monetary tightening.

This follows Thursday’s long-promised steps by the European
Central Bank to boost the level of monetary stimulus into the
euro zone economy, which, over time, puts pressure on investors
to sell euros and buy higher-yielding currencies.

This follows Thursday’s long-promised steps by the European Central Bank to increased the level of monetary stimulus into the euro zone economy, which over time puts pressure on investors to sell euros and buy higher yielding currencies.

Euro holds ground after ECB launches fight against low inflation

NEW YORK, June 5 (Reuters) – The euro rebounded from
four-month lows on Thursday, brushing aside the European Central
Bank’s decision to cut interest rates and announce an array of
measures to loosen monetary policy in order to halt a
disinflation trend.

The ECB cut all its main rates to record lows in a drive to
fight off the risk of a Japan-like deflation and bring down the
euro’s exchange rate. For the first time, it will charge banks
0.10 percent for parking funds at the central bank overnight.

Euro up after inflation data, looser ECB policy expected

NEW YORK, June 3 (Reuters) – The euro held gains against the
U.S. dollar on Tuesday, recovering ground as subdued euro zone
inflation data kept market expectations for European Central
Bank stimulus measures intact ahead of Thursday’s meeting.

Stronger-than-expected U.S. factory orders in April, a third
straight month of gains, meanwhile supported the view the U.S.
economy continued to rebuild and recover.
