The US dollar breaks below key support at 0.9500

The bank is widely expected to leave its benchmark rates unchanged although some voices anticipate that they might introduce new yield-control measures targeting the 10-year government bonds.

With the greenback losing ground across the board, the pair’s pullback from 0.9640 high on Monday has extended below late March lows at 0.9500 which has increased selling pressure on the USD.
