TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
he dollar extended its recovery on Thursday, gaining versus the yen and euro, on hopes the United States and China will agree a trade truce before a G20 summit in Japan this weekend.
The two countries have agreed to a tentative truce in their trade dispute, Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post said, citing sources, before U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping leaders meet on Saturday.
That supported buying of the dollar, which had weakened in recent weeks on expectations the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates and buying of safe-haven currencies such as the Japanese yen by investors worried about the trade conflict.
