The U.S. dollar extended its plunge against major currencies on Thursday as traders sharply unwound bullish bets against the greenback on continued skepticism that the Federal Reserve would be able to hike interest rates this year.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, hit a roughly 15-week low of 96.259.
Against the Swiss franc, the dollar dropped more than 1 percent to a 3-1/2-week low of 0.9921 franc.
The euro was last up .8 percent against the dollar at $1.1202. The dollar was last down .95 percent against the yen at 116.773 yen while the dollar index was last down .83 percent at 96.48.
