TOKYO, March 13 The euro on Monday firmed to its
highest level against the dollar since early February, after
some European Central Bank policymakers raised the possibility
of hiking interest rates before bond purchases end.
The euro was up 0.2 percent at $1.0699, after rising
as high as $1.0700, its highest level since Feb. 9.
Some members of the ECB's Governing Council discussed the
possibility of higher interest rates at last week's policy
meeting, but talk on the issue was brief and did not receive
broad support, said two sources familiar with the discussion.
