The dollar gained versus all its major counterparts after Moody’s Investors Service cut ratings on European nations including Italy, Spain and Portugal, boosting demand for safer assets. Spain was downgraded to A3 from A1, Italy was cut to A3 from A2 and Portugal was lowered to Ba3 from Ba2, Moody’s said, giving all three nations a negative outlook. The ratings firm also reduced credit levels for Slovakia, Slovenia and Malta. The U.S. currency advanced to its highest level in almost three weeks versus the yen after the Bank of Japan added to monetary easing to sustain the Asian nation’s economy.

The yen dropped against 12 of 16 major peers after the Bank of Japan said today it would increase its purchases of Japanese government bonds by 10 trillion yen ($128 billion). The central bank maintained the overnight lending rate at between zero and 0.1 percent.
