The dollar index rose 0.2% to 102.17, with a session-low at 101.71, after rising 0.1% yesterday, the first profit in three days away from eight-month lows at 101.52. 

 

Fed Rates

 

Pricing for a 0.25% rate hike by the Federal Reserve in February stands at 100%, slowing it down from recent 0.5% rate hikes.
