TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The euro rose past $1.13 and riskier currencies like the Australian dollar strengthened on Monday as optimism over a breakthrough in U.S.-China trade war talks encouraged investors.

The euro has been stuck in a trading range since November as growing weakness in the euro zone economy offsets dwindling expectations the Federal Reserve will raise U.S. interest rates again this year.

But after dropping to a three-month low on Friday, the euro has recovered, helped by renewed demand for riskier assets as hopes rose for an end to the U.S.-China trade conflict after both sides reported progress in talks.
