A measure that tracks the American currency will be making its highest close in over 5 years. The 18 nation currency was close to a 2 year low yesterday among observations that the policy makers meeting of the European Central Bank today will indicate added stimulus. The Aussie dollar fell for a 6th day when a forecast predicted it would drop 79 American cents. A volatility measure of currency climbed to its highest in 15 months.
