“Persistent offered bias around the US dollar, all against the backdrop of the Fed’s unlimited QE, was seen as one of the key factors driving the pair higher. Investors further took comfort from the passage of a massive $2 trillion US stimulus package.”
“On Thursday, the European Central Bank is scheduled to release the monthly Economic Bulletin.”
