The dollar turned positive against a basket of major world currencies in thin trade on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve made no change in forward guidance on interest rates on Wednesday.
The dollar index, which tracks the greenback against six currencies but is dominated by the euro, was marginally higher at 79.61, below an eight-day peak of 79.692 earlier in the global session but well above Friday’s nine-month low of 78.998.
Expectations that the Fed will keep up its mammoth stimulus of bond purchases well into next year had weakened the dollar for well over a month, but analysts believe it is poised for a rebound.
