TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar held near a two month-high on Monday ahead of what is expected to be the first U.S. interest rate cut since the financial crisis this week, while Britain’s rising Brexit uncertainty knocked the pound to a fresh 28-month low.

Most major currencies were keeping moves small ahead of Wednesday’s expected 25 basis point cut by the Federal Reserve, but there was at least some action to fill the void.

The pound saw another 0.3% swoon after Britain’s new foreign minister and former Brexit chief, Dominic Raab, told the European Union it needed to change its “stubborn” position to avoid a no-deal crunch in October.
