FOREX-Euro touches then falls from 3-wk high vs dollar; Fed ahead


26/04/2012 22:44 AST

The euro pulled back from a three-week high against the dollar hit earlier on Wednesday as investors repositioned ahead of a policy statement from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Most traders expect the Federal Reserve to restate its intention to keep rates near zero throughout 2014 and possibly hint at more easing, especially after recent weaker jobs data. Such comments could be positive for the single currency.

However, traders expected any gains in the euro on the Fed statement to be limited as the currency remained vulnerable to budget problems and political uncertainty in several euro zone countries.
