TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar hovered near an 11-week low against its peers on Wednesday, weighed by expectations the U.S. Federal Reserve could cut interest rates some time in the next few months.

The dollar index versus a basket of six major currencies was effectively flat at 96.707, trading just above the 96.459 level it hit on Monday, its lowest since late March.

The index has been under pressure following a sharp decline in long-term U.S. Treasury yields, which fell to near two-year lows on Friday after a soft U.S. jobs report raised expectations for an interest rate cut by the Fed.
