Daily Forex Market Commentary:
Stocks rose on Wall Street today in light volume ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. Investors bought stocks as the biggest drop in unemployment claims all year and increase in new home sales added fuel to the economic recovery.
NEW YORK (AP) — The safe-haven dollar slid to a 15-month low against the euro, was within striking distance of 14-year lows versus the yen and dipped below parity against the Swiss franc Wednesday as markets absorbed the Federal Reserve’s indication that interest rates will remain at super-low levels for a while and it was not overly concerned by the U.S. currency’s decline.
