TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar skidded to a six-week low versus the yen on Tuesday, its outlook clouded by U.S. political turmoil and doubts over whether there will be another Federal Reserve rate hike this year.
The dollar slipped to a low of 110.005 yen at one point, its lowest level since June 15. The greenback was last trading at 110.20 yen, down about 0.1 percent on the day.
While the dollar could bounce back to levels around 111.50 yen if forthcoming U.S. economic data is strong, a rise to levels beyond 112 yen seems unlikely in the near term, said Teppei Ino, an analyst for Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ in Singapore.
