    NEW YORK, March 3 (Reuters) - The dollar gained on Wednesday
as investors priced for strong U.S. growth relative to other
regions, while the safe haven Japanese yen continued to weaken
to a seven-month low.
    Investors have boosted bets on U.S. growth and inflation as
the government prepares new fiscal stimulus, and speculation is
rising that the Federal Reserve could also be closer to
normalizing monetary policy than previously expected.
    "What the market is looking at today are growth
differentials between a recovering U.S. and more of a sputtering
Europe," said Joe Manimbo, senior market analyst at Western
Union Business Solutions, in Washington.
    Data on Wednesday showed that the euro zone economy is
almost certainly in a double-dip recession as COVID-19 lockdowns
continue to hammer the services industry.
    U.S. data also showed that private payrolls rose by 117,000
jobs last month, according to the ADP National Employment
Report, missing expectations.
    However, "expectations are for stronger hiring" when the
U.S. releases jobs data for February on Friday, Manimbo said.
    The dollar index was last up 0.22% at 90.997.
    The euro dipped 0.30% to $1.2054.
    The U.S. currency has also benefited from a rise in U.S.
Treasury yields. Benchmark 10-year yields on
Wednesday rose to 1.481%, though they are below a one-year high
of 1.614% reached last week.
    Comments by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on
Thursday will be closely evaluated for any indications that the
Fed is uncomfortable with the recent yield increases. He is
speaking at an event on the U.S. economy.
    Riskier currencies including the Australian dollar dipped as
stocks fell, indicating worsening risk sentiment.
    The Aussie was last down 0.57% at $0.778. It has
fallen from a three-year high of $0.8007 last week.
    Meanwhile the safe haven Japanese yen continued to
weaken, falling as far as 107.08 yen, the weakest since July 23.
    The British pound was last down 0.06% on the day at $1.3950
after British finance minister Rishi Sunak said that Britain's
government would borrow significantly more in the coming
financial year than thought just a few months ago.
    Sunak said the economy would regain its pre-pandemic size in
the middle of 2022, six months earlier than previously forecast,
helped by Europe's fastest COVID-19 vaccination program.
