The U.S. dollar enjoyed gains against major Latin American currencies today, against the backdrop the Federal Reserve was going to keep interest rates where they're at, with no plan on raising them any time soon.
Today's gains were against the Chilean peso, Peruvian Sol, Brazilian real, Mexican Peso and Colombian peso.
With the Chilean peso, the dollar increased as high as a two-month high of 515.13, although falling back close to the end of the session.
Against the Peruvian sol, the greenback rose to a two-week high of 2.8350, in contrast to the 2.7725 close on Monday.
The dollar advanced for an 8-day high against the Brazilian real, quickly jumping to 1.5775 at about 9:00 am EST.
With the Mexican peso it also got off to a quick start in the morning, as it grew from its poor performance yesterday of 8.8568; a multi-year low. It increased to 9.9377 early in the morning, and held fairly strongly at the end of the session.
