    American Dollar

    The dollar fell to the lowest versus the euro since November 2011 as a strengthening U.S. jobs market and expectations the Federal Reserve will sustain stimulus to ensure the recovery boosted investors’ risk appetite.

    The shared currency rose against most major peers as separate data showed European manufacturing at its highest level in almost a year. The yen sank to a 2 1/2-year low amid bets Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will pick a new central-bank governor who will boost stimulus.

    U.S. Speaker John Boehner said the House can’t pass an increase to the U.S. debt ceiling without packaging it with other provisions -- something President Barack Obama has labeled a nonstarter.

    “We are not going to pass a clean debt limit,” Boehner said yesterday in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” program. “The votes are not in the House to pass a clean debt limit.”

    Boehner said he believed the country could end up in default if Obama doesn’t negotiate. “That’s the path we’re on,” he said.

    Boehner’s comments came as the stalemate between the White House and House Republicans showed little sign of thawing just 10 days from when Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew told lawmakers the U.S. will exhaust measures to avoid breaching the debt ceiling. The House and Senate weren’t in session yesterday and there were no meetings planned between the two sides.

    President Barack Obama opened the door to talks with Republicans on topics ranging from health care to entitlement programs if they end the impasse over the U.S. debt ceiling -- even as some Senate Republicans appeared open to a Democratic plan to do just that.

    Some possible paths out of the partisan impasse in Washington are starting to emerge as the U.S. government enters the ninth day of a partial shutdown, with less than a week before U.S. borrowing authority lapses Oct. 17. Each option is tentative and lawmakers remain far from an agreement amid verbal sparring between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner.

    President Barack Obama knows who is the boss: the bond market.

    “Ultimately, what matters is: What do the people who are buying Treasury bills think?” the president told reporters this week, when discussing measures he could take to end the threat of a historic default on the nation’s debt.

    Even with the U.S. budget deficit down by more than half since 2009 as a percentage of the economy, the Congressional Budget Office says the government this fiscal year will need to borrow an average of almost $11 billion each week. That’s why Obama is so sensitive to what investors will tolerate.

    The dollar slipped for a second day versus the euro as talks between President Barack Obama and House Republicans hit an impasse and U.S. senators from both parties struggled to draft an accord that averts a U.S. default.

    The yen advanced versus the greenback for the first time in five days after Obama reiterated he will negotiate on the budget after the debt ceiling is raised and a partial government shutdown ends. The U.S.’s borrowing authority lapses on Oct. 17. The euro gained before a report forecast to show industrial production in the region rebounded in August. The Singapore dollar held a two-week gain after the central bank decided to retain the currency’s “modest and gradual” appreciation.

    President Barack Obama is choosing his words carefully, when he says anything at all, while Democrat and Republican lawmakers hash out how to end the government shutdown and stave off a U.S. default.

    The president’s only public event so far this week was mingling with furloughed federal workers who volunteer at a local Washington charity rather than huddling with lawmakers. Yesterday, amid a rush of Capitol Hill negotiations in the House and Senate, media access to a White House session between Obama and House Democratic leaders was limited to a few moments for photographs and video -- no statements.

    The dollar retreated from a three-week high versus the yen after encountering so-called technical resistance and as the short-term debt deal passed by U.S. Congress failed to end political uncertainty.

    The yen rose versus its major peers as President Barack Obama signed into law a measure ending a U.S. government shutdown and extending its borrowing authority until early 2014. The greenback remained lower against higher-yielding currencies such as New Zealand’s with markets gauging the impact of the recent impasse on prospects for growth and Federal Reserve stimulus. Policy makers including Fed Bank of New York President William Dudley speak today.

    The dollar was set for a weekly drop versus its 16 major counterparts as Federal Reserve officials signal a delay in reducing stimulus before reports next week that may show U.S. home sales and confidence declined.

    The Bloomberg U.S. Dollar Index remained weaker following its lowest close in eight months, after a deal by Congress to extend funding and debt-limit deadlines into next year reopened the government and buoyed higher-yielding assets. Australia’s currency trimmed a weekly advance as technical indicators signaled it has risen too rapidly. China’s yuan reached a record and South Korea’s won climbed to a nine-month high.

    The dollar traded 0.3 percent from an eight-month low versus the euro as investors look to U.S. employment data due today to help assess the timing for a reduction in Federal Reserve stimulus.

    The greenback was poised for a monthly slide against most major counterparts ahead of a report that may show the U.S. jobless rate remained above the central bank’s threshold to start paring asset purchases. The yen held losses from yesterday versus its peers as demand for safety waned before figures this week that may show consumer-price gains in Japan held near the fastest since 2008. Malaysia’s ringgit retreated from a four-month high before the government presents its budget.

    The dollar touched the weakest almost two-years against the euro before U.S data that may add to the case for the Federal Reserve to keep its current pace of asset purchases for longer.

    The Bloomberg U.S. Dollar Index is set for the lowest close in eight months after a Labor Department report yesterday showed employers added fewer jobs than economists estimated. The Aussie dollar touched a four-month high on Australian inflation data before erasing gains. The yen climbed against all its major counterparts amid demand for refuge assets.

    The dollar slid to a two-year low versus the euro before reports today forecast to show diverging confidence in the U.S. and in Europe’s largest economy.

    The greenback headed for its second weekly loss against the euro and yen as the extra yield U.S. Treasuries offered over their German and Japanese counterparts narrowed on bets the Federal Reserve, due to meet next week, will maintain its pace of bond purchases for longer. New Zealand’s dollar weakened against all its major peers after the nation’s central bank signaled hesitation to raise borrowing costs. The yen advanced to a more-than two-week high as Asian stocks fell.
