The Euro could resume its rise against the Greenback on any signs reducing bond purchases, a policy that is gaining support within the ECB.

GBP bought $1.3938, up 0.1% on the day.

The onshore RMB Yuan rose to 6.4820 per Dollar to reach its strongest mark since 12 March.

USD is near multi-wk lows Vs most major currencies as fading gains in US Treasury yields reduced its interest rate advantage.

The Canadian Loonie, which ran to a 6-wk high Wednesday, was last quoted at 1.2494 Vs USD, is flat on the day.

The Australian and New Zealand Dollars traded near 1-month highs Vs USD, supported by speculation that their central banks are likely to follow Canada’s example due to an improving economic outlook.
