Greenback fluctuates amid doubts over Trump's tax initiative
On Wednesday, rumors that President Donald Trump's tax overhaul initiative would stall kept the greenback below a recent 10-week maximum versus key currencies, and the common currency stuck to a 12-day maximum because political tensions over Catalonia relieved a bit.

The euro's ascend strengthened after on Tuesday Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont dared to proclaim the region's independence from Spain, although he told the effects would be delayed to enable negotiations and prevent an immediate crisis.
