The U.S. dollar retraced most of its early weakness on Monday before the Federal Reserve is expected to hike rates on Wednesday, though concerns about tepid inflation were seen weighing on the greenback.
When the U.S. central bank concludes its two-day December policy meeting, investors will be watching for concern about low inflation from Fed officials and any indications that this may make further rate hikes next year less likely.
Tepid wage growth in Fridays jobs report for November added to concerns that inflation will remain benign and complicate the Feds ability to execute further rate hikes.
"Markets after last weeks numbers are probably going into the Fed a little bit more cautious, especially if [Yellen] continues to play out the disappointments we've seen around inflation and how that may impact the outlook next year," said Mark McCormick, North American head of FX strategy at TD Securities in Toronto.
