TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro fell towards a two-month low on Tuesday before a meeting by the European Commission on Italy’s budget that could see Brussels take the unprecedented step of rejecting it and demanding changes.

A dispute over Italy’s spending plans and doubts about the leadership of Britain’s prime minister, mired in a stalemate over Brexit, means investors are focusing on the likelihood of further political turmoil in Europe.

That contributed to broad risk aversion on Tuesday, with the safe-haven Japanese yen and Swiss franc strengthening while higher-yielding currencies like the Australian and New Zealand dollars fell.
