TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar carved out small gains against the euro and yen on Tuesday as investors looked to policy clues from the U.S. Federal Reserve, which is widely expected to hike rates this week, and as the Sino-U.S. trade dispute kept markets cautious.
The euro edged lower, having hit a 3-1/2-month high in the previous session after European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi expressed confidence in eurozone inflation and wages growth.
