(AP) The euro is slightly higher against the dollar as investors await a statement from the Federal Reserve.

The euro is trading at $1.3037, up from $1.3003 late Tuesday.

In other currency trades, the British pound is essentially flat against the dollar at $1.6114. The dollar is slipping against the Swiss franc. It's also down slightly against the Canadian dollar but up against the Japanese yen.
