The US Dollar index reached 89.74. The euro and sterling decreased vs the US dollar to $1.2351 and 1.3910 respectively.

At the same time, the Japanese yen increased – USD-JPY dropped to 109.09. The US dollar to the franc went up to 0.9385.

The USD to CAD climbed up to 1.2515.

AUD and NZD to USD pairs also trimmed gains reaching 0.7869 and 0.7314 respectively.

Notably, the market awaits the monetary decision of New Zealand's Reserve Bank to be announced tomorrow. According to the reports, it is expected that the Bank will leave interest rate at 1.75%.
