TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar rose on Thursday as rival currencies struggled following more dovish soundings from central banks, while the yen gained as investor worries about the global economy grew.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand joined a growing list of central banks that have turned dovish amid signs of a slowing global economy, saying on Wednesday its next move in interest rates was likely to be a cut.

With many currencies on the defensive, the dollar has brushed aside a decline in benchmark U.S. Treasury yields to 15-month lows. The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies gained 0.2 percent to 96.974 and headed for its third day of gains.
