TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The British pound slipped early on Wednesday after a poll showed a narrowing lead for Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party in an election scheduled for later in the week, while U.S. dollar movement looked to the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting.

Investors were also focusing on whether U.S. President Donald Trump will impose tariffs on nearly $160 billion worth of Chinese consumer goods from Dec. 15.
