TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar lost ground on Tuesday as riskier currencies rebounded on tentative hopes that lockdowns may be slowing the spread of the coronavirus in some countries.
Bets that the world’s biggest crude producers may cut supply to support oil prices also boosted market sentiment.
