News & Events

March 3, 2015
The US Dollar hit a 6 week high vs the Euro as interest rate differentials continued to favor US Treasuries. While US yields inched higher, most Euro Zone bond yields held near record lows ahead of this week's launch of the European Central Bank's 1.1 trillion Euro bond buying program. Further details of the ECB's fresh stimulus measures is expected to also be released later this week. The US currency slipped from its 3 week highs against the Japanese Yen after an economic adviser to Japanese Prime Minister Abe said the Dollar could not sustain more gains. The Japanese adviser also said that the Dollar may be nearing a 'kind of upper limit in the exchange rate's comfort zone.' The English Pound crawled higher after a survey of construction managers came in slightly better than expected. The Aussie Dollar was higher against the greenback after the Federal Reserve Bank of Australia left rates unchanged at a record low of 2.25%. The Canadian Dollar climbed higher vs its southern neighbor after data showed the Canadian economy grew by a higher than expected 2.4% in the 4th Qtr. US stock futures point to a lower open on Wall Street.
