The exchange volumes should have remained relatively low prior to the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States on Thursday, which is also a national holiday in Japan.
The dollar fell after the minutes from the Wednesday of the last Fed meeting which showed that “many participants” were worried by the fact that inflation would remain below the 2% objective of the bank.
The minutes echoed the comments of Janet Yellen, president of the Fed, at the beginning of the week, indicating that it was not some of the inflation outlook.
While the increase in rates in December is still almost fully expected, investors reduced expectations of further rate hikes in 2018.
