Traders later reacted to earlier news of President Obama had picked San Francisco's Fed President Janey Yellen as top contender for the post to succeed Donald Kohn as Fed vice chairman as Yellen is considered to be a strong advocate of continued loose monetary policy . Later in Europe, rumors came out on recommendation by the research department of a well respected US investment bank to long EUR/USD triggered a wave of euro buying, this action had triggered more stoploss buying in early European trading. The single currency picked up more upward momentum after the release of better-than-expected industrial production data from Eurozone. Industrial production rose 1.7% (-1.3% as forecasted) from December, which is the strongest rise since 1990. The euro rose to a 4-week high versus the dollar at 1.3796 in European morning before retreating on profit-taking.

Versus the yen, dollar went through a very volatile trading day.
