TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar’s early bounce fizzled on Tuesday, as markets saw few concrete measures emerging from the U.S.-North Korea summit and waited for guidance from two of the world’s top central banks later this week.
U.S. President Donald Trump said he had formed a “very special bond” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the meeting, but the Korean stock and currency markets were broadly flat and U.S. debt, which tends to benefit from geopolitical uncertainty, held steady.
“This is more of a side show and headline grabber rather than yielding anything substantive with markets more worried about the developments at the G7 summit,” said Viraj Patel, a currency strategist at ING in London.
