TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar held to gains against the yen and euro on Tuesday, supported by a rise in Treasury yields following a report that U.S. President Donald Trump was favoring a policy hawk as the next head of the Federal Reserve.
Treasury yields bounced from two-week lows and rose on Monday after a report that President Trump was favoring Stanford economist John Taylor, seen as more hawkish than current Chair Janet Yellen, to head the Fed.
“The dollar was under pressure as Treasury yields declined last week. But it was allowed to rebound as a stronger Wall Street, good U.S. data and the report about Taylor all came into place to stop the yield decline,” said Junichi Ishikawa, senior forex strategist at IG Securities in Tokyo.
