TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar traded slightly below a 16-month high versus a basket of peers on Tuesday, benefiting from save-haven flows sparked by political uncertainties in Europe and fears of a global economic slowdown.

Investor confidence has been eroded by bitter trade tensions between the United States and China, fears of a no-deal Brexit, and a standoff between Rome and the European Union over Italy’s deficit-deepening budget.

Added to that litany is a view that corporate earnings growth has peaked amid rising borrowing costs.
