The euro added to overnight gains to reach a six-day high of $1.1820, prompted by expectations that the ECB would cut back on its bond-buying stimulus and take the biggest step yet in unwinding years of loose monetary policy.

The central bank, however, is still concerned about low inflation and is expected to accompany the tapering with an extension of the stimulus in a �less-but-for-longer� move.

The dollar was 0.1 percent lower at 113.605 yen.

The greenback rose to a three-month high of 114.245 yen overnight as the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield spiked to a seven-month peak of 2.475 percent.

But the dollar pared the gains as the Treasury yield retraced its rise amid the drop in Wall Street shares. The 10-year Treasury yield last stood at 2.429 percent.

The dollar index against a basket of six currencies was down 0.1 percent at 93.601, its lowest in six days.

The pound added to overnight gains and brushed $1.3276, its highest in 10 days. Sterling climbed almost 1 percent the previous day after stronger-than-expected U.K. growth data cemented expectations the Bank of England will raise interest rates next week.
