Euro stalls at two-week low ahead of Fed's meeting

Euro fell in European trade against dollar for second session, touching two-week lows ahead of the Federal Reserve's first 2022 meeting.

 

EUR/USD fell 0.3% yo 1.1282, with an intraday high at 1.1327, after closing down 0.15% yesterday, plumbing two-week lows at 1.1290.

 

Euro lost 0.6% last week against dollar on renewed fears of policy divergence between Europe and the US.

 

The dollar index rose 0.2% on Tuesday, the second profit in a row against a basket of major rivals. 

 

Geopolitical tensions in Ukraine with Russia has renewed purchases of dollar as a safe haven, while investors await Fed's meeting later today, expected to offer clues on the future of policy this year.

 

The Fed is expected to get even more bullish than before, in turn widening the policy gap between Europe and the US and hurting euro's position further.
