Dollar Appears Likely to Extend Fall Against Euro [Wall Street Journal]

Summary: dollarDespite strong gains against the dollar last week, the consensus on Wall Street is that the dollar will continue its losses against other major currencies this week and beyond. One reason for this is Wall Street's continued focus on strong European economic performance versus weak economic reporting coming out of the U.S. And with the ECB and Bank of England set to announce rate hikes this week, further pressure to the dollar continues to seem likely.
