Thursday, 20 June 2019 23:20 WIB | CURRENCIES | Indeks DolarDolar AS

The U.S. dollar fell to a three-month low on Thursday after the Federal Reserve indicated that it was prepared to cut interest rates this year.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback™s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.4% to 96.180 by 10:27 AM ET (14:27 GMT).

Federal Reserve policymakers signaled on Wednesday that they would be willing to cut rates in order to combat slowing global growth and cooling inflation.

The dollar fell against the safe-haven Japanese yen, with USD/JPY down 0.4% to 107.63.

The Bank of Japan kept rates steady overnight, but echoed the Fed in its warning on global risks. The BOJ signaled it could also increase stimulus to help the Japanese economy.

Elsewhere, the euro was stronger on the weak dollar, with EUR/USD up 0.7% to 1.1305, while sterling was also higher. GBP/USD rose 0.4% to 1.2692. USD/CAD fell 0.8% to 1.3177.
