TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar slipped broadly on Wednesday, hurt by a media report that suggested the implementation of a centerpiece corporate tax cut under discussion in U.S. tax reforms plans could be delayed.
The Washington Post, citing unidentified sources, reported on Tuesday that Senate Republican leaders are considering a one-year delay in the implementation of a major corporate tax cut to comply with Senate rules.
The dollar had risen to a three-month high against a basket of currencies late in October, helped by expectations that reforms initiated by U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration would deliver tax cuts, boost the economy and lift interest rates.
