US GDP Data in Focus
Dollar broadly lower vs. rivals ahead of U.S. GDP data
Investing.com – The dollar was broadly lower against a basket of other major currencies on Wednesday, as sentiment on the greenback weakened ahead of a highly anticipated final report on first quarter U.S. growth.
The dollar had found support after the U.S. Commerce Department reported on Tuesday that new home sales jumped by 2.2% to 546,000 units last month, hitting the highest level since February 2008.
Investors were eyeing an upcoming report on first-quarter U.S. growth due later Wednesday for further indications on the timing of a rate hike by the Federal Reserve.
The safe-haven greenback also strengthened after euro zone finance ministers failed to reach agreement over Greece’s bailout at an emergency meeting on Monday.
