The U.S. dollar rebounded against the euro on Tuesday on persistent bullish sentiment toward the greenback tied to the divergence of monetary policy between the United States and Europe, but the impact of last week's Federal Reserve statement limited its gains.
The dollar recovered against the euro after two straight sessions of losses on the view that the Fed will still hike interest rates this year, while the European Central Bank continues with its bond-buying stimulus program.
Early in Tuesday's session, the euro rose above $1.10 for the first time since March 18, when the Fed released its latest policy statement. Analysts said the dollar will continue to find support as it hits key lows against other currencies, despite being weighed down by the dovish Fed statement, which suggested a less aggressive timeline for hiking rates.
"You cannot say the euro weakening trend or the dollar strengthening trend has been broken," said Joseph Trevisani, chief market strategist at WorldWideMarkets in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.
