TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar firmed on Wednesday as optimism that the coronavirus crisis was slowing waned, increasing investor concerns over the economic impact of the pandemic.

The euro and the Aussie dollar were among the main losers at the greenback’s expense, a day after the dollar suffered its worst drop against a basket of currencies in nearly two weeks.

The dollar’s rise came as global stocks wavered after two days of gains as deaths from the coronavirus mounted across the globe. The rising toll soured U.S. markets late on Tuesday, with pessimism spreading to Asian indexes a day later
