    The greenback plunged across the board on Wednesday after the Fed downgraded its economic growth and inflation projections, signalling it is in no rush to push borrowing costs to more normal levels and pouring cold water on investor expectations of a June rate hike.

So the weakness that we saw in the dollar in the aftermath of that translated into some rebounds in euro/dollar," said Phyllis Papadavid, senior global FX strategist at BNP Paribas in London.
