TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar held near multi-week highs on Monday amid optimism that the United States and China would roll back tariffs that have hurt global growth.
The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies stood flat at 98.323, just off its 3-1/2-week high of 98.404 touched on late Friday.
Officials from both countries said late last week that a rollback of some tit-for-tat tariffs had been agreed as part of a preliminary deal, that has still to be finalized, aimed at ending the trade war.
