TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The U.S. dollar edged lower on Monday as investors looked to domestic corporate earnings and upcoming retail data to gauge whether guarded optimism on the country’s economic outlook is justified.
The index that measures the dollar against a basket of six other major currencies – which often serves as a safe-haven for investors seeking high-quality assets in moments of market volatility – was down 0.31% in North American morning trade. The dollar ended its third week of losses on Friday as investors bought into risk-sensitive currencies on bets that the worst of the pandemic’s sweeping impact was over.
