Currencies: Dollar holds steady, while sterling, Aussie dollar get jerked around on Brexit and trade news

The U.S. dollar hovered in positive territory early Thursday after the Federal Reserve’s January meeting minutes a day earlier failed to put another dovish damper on market sentiment.

Last month, the central bank took a turn and stressed that it could be patient on further interest-rate moves, which weighed on the dollar and had market participants concerned about what the minutes would reveal. However, they showed that the voting members of the Federal Open Market Committee were undecided on their future rates strategy, with no discussion of potential rate cuts.

The ICE U.S. Dollar Index DXY, -0.08% was little changed but in the green on Thursday, at 96.466.
