Charles Evans, Chicago Fed President told that the major US financial institution will probably wait until June to decide on the next rate lift.

The US dollar index, measuring the greenback’s actual value against a trade-weighted basket of six crucial rivals, dived 0.14% to 100.02. 

Meanwhile, USD/JPY hit 112.60, ascending 0.04%, AUD/SUD reached 0.7719, sliding 0.16% notwithstanding minutes of the Reserve Bank of Australia's March policy gathering that backed market views that policy bias turned to be neutral to a lift as the next move.

Overnight, the major American currency recovered from early session losses to trade moderately higher against a basket of key currencies, as the British pound dropped, following news that Article 50 is going to be triggered next week.
