Dollar weakness

"European officials said the two sides were holding increasingly antagonistic views. European governments and central bankers are increasingly concerned about the problem while US officials insisted there were no grounds to act.

Most analysts believe the Bush administration favours a weaker dollar to help domestic exporters and narrow the ballooning trade deficit. It would be loath to see a dollar rise just ahead of the presidential election."
