TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The Australian dollar and the Chinese yuan inched up on hopes Washington and Beijing were close to a trade deal after a bitter year-long tariff dispute.

Fueling such expectations was a report from the Wall Street Journal on Sunday that said the United States and China could reach a formal agreement at a summit around March 27 given progress in talks between the two countries.

The Aussie gained as much as 0.57 percent to $0.7118, before giving up some of its gains to $0.7085 following soft business inventories and declines in job advertisements and dwelling approvals.
