The U.S. dollar climbed against the euro amid hawkish comments from Fed officials. Three policy makers said yesterday that they expect higher rates by the end of 2015. The dollar rose amid speculation that the U.S. economy was ready for a rate hike.
The pound is under pressure ahead of publication of UK budget deficit data, scheduled for this week. The deficit is expected to post an increase in August compared to the previous month. However higher revenues from taxes might have decreased the deficit compared to the same period last year.
The yen climbed after yesterday's decline. Dealers from Asia said that Japanese exporters placed sell orders above Y120.50, which weigh on the greenback and support the yen. These orders used to be at Y121.00 and higher. However exporters moved them lower. Japanese stock markets are closed due to the National Day holiday.
