TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar slipped on Monday after its biggest weekly rise this year as investors took profits before a central bank decision this week where markets are waiting to see if strong economic data will spur a more hawkish stance.
Net short bets on the dollar fell to their smallest in nearly three months, about $8 billion, roughly half of what they were a month ago, according to calculations by Reuters and Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released last week.
Investor sentiment towards the dollar has undergone a significant shift in recent weeks thanks to strong data and expectations about the appointment of a new hawkish-leaning Federal Reserve chair.
