TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar stood tall against other major currencies on Tuesday as geopolitical risks encouraged investors to flock to the relative safe-appeal of the greenback before a U.S. central bank policy meeting this week, where a rate cut is widely expected.

Though oil prices pulled back slightly after surging to four-month highs on Monday, they remained about 15% higher than Friday’s close as markets remain wary over the threat of a military response to attacks on Saudi Arabian crude oil facilities.
