TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar slipped from a four-week high against a basket of currencies on Wednesday after a Democrat won a bitter fight for a U.S. Senate seat in deeply conservative Alabama, reducing Republicans’ already narrow Senate majority further.
The reduced Senate majority could make it harder for President Donald Trump to push through tax cut plans and other economic agenda.
The dollar index slipped 0.15 percent to 93.941 after having risen to 94.219 on Tuesday, its highest level since Nov. 14.
