Forex - Dollar little changed amid fresh U.S. political concerns-SapForex24

The dollar remained moderately lower against other major currencies on Wednesday, amid fresh U.S. political concerns although growing expectations for a June rate hike by the Federal Reserve still lent some support to the greenback.

EUR/USD was steady at 1.0869, close to the six-month high of 1.1021 set on Monday after Emmanuel Macron win in the French presidential election.

ECB President Mario Draghi was scheduled to speak at the Dutch House of Representatives later in the day.

Investors were waiting to see if he adopts a more optimistic tone on the euro-area economy in light of recent upbeat economic reports.

Meanwhile, the greenback weakened after U.S. President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey.

Comey had been leading his agency's investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign and possible collusion with Trump's campaign.

GBP/USD added 0.14% to 1.2955, close to Monday’s eight-month peak of 1.2990.

USD/JPY slipped 0.14% to 113.84, while USD/CHF eased 0.08% to 1.0067.

The Australian and New Zealand dollars were stronger, with AUD/USD up 0.39% at 0.7371 and with NZD/USD advancing 0.49% to trade at 0.6929.

Meanwhile, USD/CAD fell 0.20% to 1.3693.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, was steady at 99.43, after hitting a two-week high of 99.56 on Tuesday.
