TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro gained on Thursday as the dollar weakened after the Federal Reserve on Wednesday cut interest rates for the third time this year and left open the question of whether it would cut them further.

The dollar was falling against most currencies, particularly the Chinese offshore yuan, which rose to an 11-week high.

The Fed lowered its benchmark rate by 25 basis points to a target range of 1.50% to 1.75%. But it dropped a reference in its policy statement that it would “act as appropriate” to sustain economic expansion — language considered a sign of future cuts.
