TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar stood close to a two-week high against key peers on Tuesday, shored up by a resilient U.S. economy and a flagging euro ahead of a European Central Bank policy meeting.

Higher U.S. bond yields kept the dollar well bid, and though rates were off overnight peaks, traders bet the greenback had more going for it than some of its peers.

The euro remained wobbly before the ECB meeting on Thursday. The ECB is facing growing pressure to address how to protect the euro zone economy from a protracted slowdown.
