TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The U.S. dollar fell across the board on Wednesday after dismal U.S. retail sales data painted a gloomy picture of the economy and supported the case for further interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

The dollar index, which measures the U.S. currency against six major currencies, was down 0.1% at 98.188.

U.S. retail sales fell for the first time in seven months in September, suggesting that manufacturing-led weakness could be spreading to the broader economy.
