TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar steadied against a basket of currencies on Wednesday, as risk aversion sparked by concerns over a worsening trade feud between Washington and Beijing ebbed, although lingering worries about the tariff rift kept currencies on edge.

The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies stood little changed at 95.123 after advancing to an 11-month peak of 95.296 on Tuesday.

The index reached the 11-month peak after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to slap more tariffs on China, prompting an angry response from Beijing. Escalating tensions triggered risk aversion and caused a sell-off in global equities on Tuesday.
