The U.S. dollar traded lower against the most major currencies. The Fed's interest decision on Wednesday still weighed on the U.S. currency. The Fed cut its monthly asset purchases by another $10 billion to $35 billion and kept the Federal Funds Target Rate between zero and 0.25 percent. Market participants had expected this decision. The Fed pointed out that interest rates will remain unchanged for a considerable time after the Fed's asset purchase program ends.
