00:00 China Bank holiday 0

00:00 Australia Bank holiday 0


The dollar traded 0.1 percent from the least in five weeks against the euro after the Federal Reserve extended its pledge to keep interest rates low until late 2014. Economic conditions will likely “warrant exceptionally low levels for the federal funds rate at least through late 2014,” the Federal Open Market Committee said in a statement released in Washington yesterday. The Fed had previously pledged to keep its rate target in place until mid-2013. The central bank also lowered its forecast for economic growth this year to a range of 2.2 percent to 2.7 percent, down from a projection of 2.5 percent to 2.9 percent in November. U.S. gross domestic product increased at a 3 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter, according to the median forecast of economists in a Bloomberg News survey before the Commerce Department’s releases the data tomorrow. That compares with a 1.8 percent advance in the previous three-month period.

New Zealand’s dollar maintained a four-day gain even after the nation’s central bank held its key interest rate at a record low.

Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Alan Bollard said today it is “prudent” for the central bank to keep interest rates at record low 2.5 percent.

Demand for the 17-nation euro was limited before talks on a Greek debt swap resume.
