TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar held most of its overnight gains against a basket of its key rivals, with Tuesday’s trade supported by a safe haven bid as fresh worries over Sino-U.S. frictions and fears of a slowdown in global economic growth sapped investors’ confidence.
Investors took cover in the greenback after Bloomberg reported that Washington is preparing to announce tariffs on all remaining Chinese imports by early December if talks next month between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping fail to ease the trade war.
