Dollar Index Update on 20 July 2018

The U.S. Dollar Index is trading at 94.920 with a loss of -0.060% percent or  -0.060  point. The Dow Futures is trading at 24,954.00  with a loss of -0.42% percent or -105.00 point.

The dollar held below a one-year high on Friday after U.S. President Donald Trump expressed concern about a stronger currency, although a weakening Chinese yuan reduced risk appetite.

The dollar is poised for a second straight week of gains and has gained more than 5 percent in the past three months on expectations the U.S. central bank will keep raising interest rates in the coming months.

But in a CNBC interview on Thursday, Trump said a strong dollar puts the United States at a disadvantage and that the Chinese yuan “was dropping like a rock”.
