NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. dollar extended its losses against the euro and the yen on Wednesday, after minutes released from the Federal Reserve’s November meeting showed a “substantial majority” of policymakers agreed it would “likely soon be appropriate” to slow the pace of interest rate hikes.
The euro was 0.9% higher against the dollar at $1.03905, on pace for a second straight session of gains. Against the yen, the dollar was down 1.1% at 139.63 yen.
