The euro climbed against the U.S. dollar ahead of an ECB meeting scheduled for Thursday. Many investors expect the bank to decide to expand its quantitative easing program. Speaking earlier at a European Banking Congress in Frankfurt ECB President Maria Draghi said that at the next meeting the central bank will assess the degree of stability of factors, which hold back inflation. He added if the 2% inflation target was at risk the central bank would use all tools available to support it.

The yen rose sharply against the U.S. dollar after sources reported that Japan's public pension fund had started to hedge a small amount of its investments against currency fluctuations, particularly against fluctuations in the euro in the "short term". This step was taken because of a negative outlook for the euro amid expectations for further easing by the European Central Bank.

The Australian dollar rose after the Reserve Bank of Australia left its benchmark interest rate at 2% as expected. The bank said the economy continued expanding at a moderate pace amid declines in mining investment. Inflation is expected to remain low and its outlook gives room for further policy easing.
