C$ eases from highs ahead of Fed announcement  TORONTO: The Canadian dollar slid against the US dollar on Wednesday after a four-day rally, with traders looking ahead to the Federal Reserve's policy announcement on Thursday. Markets are anticipating the US central bank to announce a third round of bond purchases in an effort to revitalize a sluggish economy that has dragged on the country's employment growth. "Nothing's going on today -- a little bit of profit-taking across the markets. I think the markets as a whole still expect QE3 from the Fed tomorrow and that's really how they're positioned right now," said Shane Enright, executive director, foreign exchange sales at CIBC World Markets. "If we get it, I imagine there will still be some volatility, probably broader consolidation. If we don't see it, there should be US strength across the board." Stimulus action by the Fed is expected to weigh on the US dollar against currencies such as the Canadian dollar. At 3:19 ...

Euro advances to 4-mth highs vs dollar on German ruling  NEW YORK: The euro climbed to a four-month peak against the dollar on Wednesday after Germany's Constitutional Court approved the euro zone's new rescue fund and budget pact, mitigating concerns about the region's three-year-old debt crisis.

The euro climbed to $1.2936, its highest since mid-May, blowing past reported option barriers ...
Brazil real weakens as central bank defends currency  RIO DE JANEIRO: The Brazilian real weakened o n Wednesday after the country's central bank intervened to halt four sessions of gains that drove the currency near an informal floor of 2 reais per dollar.

Argentina currency policy creates multi-headed monster  BUENOS AIRES: Argentina's increasingly tough currency controls have spawned multiple exchange rates that hurt savers without helping exporters, and they could backfire by depressing investment and driving up inflation. President Cristina Fernandez is trying to lock in currency stability and end Argentines' long obsession with dollars in a country scarred by devaluations, most recently in 2002. The onerous controls are distorting the economy. The multiple exchange rate system - which the government does not acknowledge - forces ...
Euro rises ahead of German court ESM ruling  NEW YORK: The euro gained against the dollar Tuesday amid rising expectations that a German court will rule in favor of the eurozone rescue fund and the Federal Reserve will take new easing measures.

Latam currencies gain on Fed bets, Moody SAO PAULO: Latin American currencies gained on Tuesday as a Moody's warning on US credit ratings weighed on the dollar globally, adding to bets the greenback will further underperform higher-yielding currencies as central banks deploy additional stimulus measures.
