    Bernanke also added that the surge in unemployment has reached a saturation point or finish, if we want to see significant improvements in this sector will require a more rapid growth in manufacturing sector and consumer and business demand, this process can be supported if the policies are accommodative running constantly.

    Thanks to Bernanke's statement that triggered the indication that the Fed will continue the bond purchase plan, the U.S. stock
    jump at least 1 percent.

    The Fed also give direct statements will keep interest rates near zero at least until the end of 2014. But many market participants expect interest rates will only change the fastest middle of next year after seeing a positive indication of economic growth and employment growth is quite solid.

    While the U.S. gross domestic product grew 3 percent last dikwartal fourth, but is expected to slow down just under 2 percent in the first three months of this year. Overall last year, GDP grew only 1.7 percent. Sluggish economic demand fueled speculation the Fed will continue its bond purchase program even though there are signs of labor market improvement.

    Dollar Fall On Talk easing Bernanke
    Wednesday, 28 March 2012

    The dollar fell against major world currencies on Wednesday after U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke stressed that while the economy shows signs of improvement, the headwinds are still valid and the launch of new stimulus measures can not be ruled out.

    In Asian trading on Wednesday, the euro rose against the dollar, the EUR / USD rises 0.14% and traded at 1.3333.

    Earlier this week, Federal Chairman Bernanke suggested that loose monetary policy will need to continue to fuel consumer and business demand in a way to make lasting improvements to the labor market.

    Although the gains in the labor market, recruitment remains unacceptably weak.

    "Further significant improvements in the unemployment rate will likely require more-rapid expansion of production and demand from consumers and businesses, a process that can be supported by continued accommodative policies," Bernanke said the National Association of Business Economics Annual Conference, Washington, DC

    Bernanke appeared again in public in the U.S. before the opening of Asia, Wednesday, and while a little more gentle, he still insisted he could not rule out the need for stimulus measures like the purchase of bonds outstanding from the bank, which is flooding the economy with liquidity to promote the recruitment and price stability while encouraging long-term interest rates lower and the weakening of the dollar in the process.

    "Well, we do not take options off the table," Bernanke said ABC News.

    "We do not know what will happen in the future, and we must be ready to respond, but the economy growing."

    Lackluster economic data in the U.S. dollar does not help either.

    The Conference Board reported that the closely watched consumer confidence index slipped to 70.2 in March from a revised 71.6 in February, slightly worse than expected reading of 70.3.

    Meanwhile, / Standard & Poor's Case-Shiller U.S. home price index fell at an annual rate of 3.8% in January from a year earlier, meeting the expectations of even reading shows that home prices continue to fall.

    Against the greenback in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, with USD / CAD up 0.08% at 0.9956, AUD / USD down 0.14% at 1.0444 and NZD / USD down 0.09% at 0.8198.

    The dollar index, which tracks the performance of the greenback versus a basket of six other major currencies, fell 0.03% to 79.25.
