Headline: Dollar falls after Trump adviser calls euro ‘grossly undervalued’

The U.S. dollar fell against the euro and its other major rivals on Tuesday, pressured by President Donald Trump’s latest policy moves and views on the currencies market. Traders also were awaiting the conclusion of a two-day policy meeting of the Federal Reserve, which could influence currency trading.

The dollar took a hit against the euro, climbing to its lows of the session after Peter Navarro, the head of Trump’s recently formed National Trade Council, called the euro “grossly undervalued.” The comments followed a statement by Trump earlier this month, when he said the dollar had gotten “too strong.” Together, the statements suggested the new administration is focusing on currency as part of its hard-charging approach on trade ties.
