The US dollar was little changed on Wednesday as markets turned their focus on the end of the Federal Reserve’s two-day meeting.
The US dollar index, which weighs the greenback against a basket of major currencies, slightly gained 0.02 percent to $93.75. Since August, the index has dropped by about 3 percent.
The dollar-yen pair meanwhile fell 0.1 percent to 112.83. Japan’s government spokesman announced on Friday that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President Donald Trump will hold a summit on September 26 to discuss the promotion of bilateral trade following a round of trade talks.
As the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) set the yuan reference at 6.8571 against Tuesday’s 6.8440, the greenback rose 0.1 percent to 6.8766 against the yuan.
Elsewhere, the New Zealand dollar climbed 0.1 percent to 0.6657 against its US counterpart, after rising as high as 0.6682 due to a better-than-expected business confidence report.
