The U.S. dollar traded higher against the most major currencies due to yesterday's Fed's monetary policy meeting minutes. Markets participants were disappointed because there was no information on when the Fed could start to raise its interest rate. The Fed could keep interest rate at low level for a longer period.
Fed policymakers agreed to end the Fed's bond-buying programme in October.
The Fed said that the economy is continuing to improve. But there are different views over the outlook for inflation.
The central bank added that U.S. consumer prices should increase and the labour market tighten before it will start to raise its interest rate.
The euro dropped against the U.S. dollar due to the weaker-than-expected data from France. French industrial production declined 1.7% in May, missing expectations for a 0.5% rise, after a 0.3% gain in April.
On a yearly basis, French industrial production fell 3.7% in May, after a 2.0% drop in April.
French consumer price index remained flat in June, missing expectations for a 0.2% rise. On a yearly basis, French consumer price index increased 0.6% in June, after a 0.7% gain in May.
The British pound declined against the U.S. dollar after the Bank of England's interest decision and the weaker-than-expected trade data from the U.K. The Bank of England kept unchanged its interest rate at 0.5%. The volume of the BoE's asset purchase program remained unchanged at £375 billion. This decision was expected by the analysts.
The U.K. trade deficit climbed to £9.2 billion in May from a deficit of £8.81 billion in April. April's figure was revised up from a deficit of £8.92 billion. Analysts had expected a deficit of £9.00 billion.
The Canadian dollar traded lower against the U.S. dollar ahead of the Canadian new housing price index. The index should increase 0.3% in May, after a 0.2% gain in April.
