The U.S. dollar traded mixed to higher against the most major currencies. The U.S. currency remained supported by Tuesday's comments by the Fed Chair Janet Yellen. The Fed Chair said the economy in the U.S. is continuing to improve but the recovery is not yet complete. She added that if the labour market continues to improve more quickly, the Fed will hike its interest rate sooner than expected, but weaker conditions will mean a longer period of low interest rate.
The U.S. currency was also supported by new sanctions against Russia.
