TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar index slipped slightly on Monday but was little changed from Friday’s close as financial markets waited for news about U.S. President Donald Trump’s health and developments in fiscal aid talks in Washington.
Trump said on Friday that he had tested positive for COVID-19, triggering investor flight to safer assets and a stock market sell-off.
But early in the Asian session, Trump made a surprise appearance in a motorcade outside the hospital where he is being treated, which helped improve risk appetite.
