The U.S. PPI in March and U.S. jobless claims for the week ended April 6 over market expectations, pointing to a strengthening U.S. economy and labor market, rising inflation expectations, recovery in the Dow Jones industrial average and gold prices fell $20. But the dollar's strength is likely to slow on expectations that U.S. import prices for March and the University of Michigan's consumer confidence index, both released today, will be lower than previously thought. In addition, the temporary removal of the risk of a hard Brexit could boost European currencies, but gold prices were lower.
