The official currency of Latvia is the Euro. The euro extended losses towards the $1.19 mark, hovering around its weakest level since late November, as investors turned to bond yields and the dollar after US Fed chief said that the economic reopening could boost inflation temporarily. The euro was already under pressure as investors continue to monitor the slow pace of COVID-19 vaccination in the EU and its impact on Europe's economic recovery. Elsewhere, remarks from a number of European Central Bank policymakers this week suggested the bloc's monetary authority stands ready to provide more stimulus if needed to keep yields down and support the economy.
