TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar rose towards a 10-week high against a basket of other currencies on Monday as concerns about global growth pervaded markets.

World stocks have sold off in October, beset by worries over corporate earnings and geopolitical uncertainty.

That has lifted the dollar – a currency that typically outperforms in risk-off periods – but the currency has strengthened only moderately.

“This likely reflects a number of factors, including long dollar positioning and, by the end of this week, some modest repricing of Federal Reserve expectations,” said Zach Pandl, co-head of foreign exchange at Goldman Sachs.
