Gains in the greenback came after the US Fed expressed its confidence about its future outlook of the inflation, which provides more room to go ahead with its future rate hike measures. Better than expected APD jobs data also supported the greenback against a basket of currencies. The EUR weakened against the USD, after data indicated that the growth in the common currency bloc slowed during Q1-18. The GBP remained broadly unchanged against the USD, as renewed concerns relating to the Brexit deal more than offset a strong rise in the UK’s construction activity data. The TRY dropped against the USD, after the S&P ratings services reduced the nation’s credit rating further into the junk status.
