Meanwhile the euro took a hit and slumped across the board weighed by weaker-than-expected Eurozone inflation figures.

The EUR/USD extended losses after CPI figures and hit a low of 1.3654 before slowing the sell-off. Immediate support stands at 1.3650 where static level converges with the 20-day SMA. The GBP/USD was a tad lower around 1.6025, while USD/CHF touched a 9-day high of 0.9032.

However, the dollar is facing mild daily losses versus the yen and commodity currencies. The USD/JPY is pulling back from yesterday's high to trade near 98.20. The NZD is outperforming after RBNZ decision while AUD and CAD are also gaining.

During the New York session watch for US initial jobless claims and Chicago PMI.
