TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar was higher on Wednesday before an expected Federal Reserve interest rate hike priced in by investors still on edge about a trade row between the United States and China.

The Fed is expected to raise interest rates for the eighth time since late 2015. Investors are also counting on another rate increase by the end of the year, but the outlook for 2019 is less clear.

Focus will be on the central bank’s policy outlook and any comments on the global trade dispute.
