<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">"This move has prompted further U.S. dollar selling, especially in Asian currencies, sending the Australian dollar near to parity, and the yen to new 15 year highs," said Michael Hewson, market analyst at CMC Markets.

By late afternoon London time, the euro was 0.7 percent higher at $1.4057 after having earlier risen as far as $1.4121, its highest level since late January. The euro has returned to favor recently given the seeming policy divergence between the Fed and the European Central Bank, which has balked at the idea of further monetary easing.

"As the ECB continues its exit from emergency monetary policies, we expect further upside pressure on the euro," said Jane Foley, senior foreign exchange strategist at Rabobank International.

Meanwhile, the British pound was 0.6 percent firmer at $1.5980, just shy of its earlier eight-month high of $1.6066, while the Australian dollar was close to breaking parity with the U.S. dollar for the first time in 28 years. It earlier traded as close as $0.9993.

The dollar was also down 0.4 percent against the Japanese yen, to 81.47 yen, following its earlier fall to a fresh 15-year low of 80.94 yen. </div></div>
