The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies after the mixed U.S. housing market data. Housing starts in the U.S. dropped 17.0% to 897,000 annualized rate in February from a 1.081 million pace in January, missing expectations for a decrease to 1.050 million.

The euro traded higher against the U.S. dollar after the ZEW economic sentiment index from the Eurozone. Germany's ZEW economic sentiment index increased to 54.8 in March from 53.0 in February, but missing expectations for a rise to 58.9. That was the highest reading since February 2014.

The increase was driven by lower oil prices and a weaker euro. Greek debt talks and the Ukraine conflict continue to weigh on sentiment.

The Canadian dollar traded lower against the U.S. dollar after the weaker-than-expected Canadian manufacturing shipments. Canadian manufacturing shipments dropped 1.7% in January, missing forecasts of a 1.1% decrease, after a 1.6% increase in December. December's figure was revised down from a 1.7% rise.

The decline was driven by a drop in sales of petroleum and coal products.
