TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar started the week little changed on Monday as traders set sights on new Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s first monetary policy meeting later in the week and as the increased threat of trade protectionism kept markets on edge.
The Japanese yen has also moved little so far though traders were nervous after weekend polls suggested a massive drop in public support for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over his handling of a festering cronyism scandal.
The dollar index stood flat at 90.274, having gained on Friday following strong U.S. economic data, marking the index’s third straight week of gains.
