TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The U.S. dollar rose off a 2-1/2-month low versus major peers on Wednesday, as some traders bet that a hotter-than-expected inflation report could force the Federal Reserve to tighten monetary policy sooner than telegraphed.
Though the dollar index touched its weakest in more than two months against the euro overnight, it later rose to 90.77 as selling pressure persisted in stock markets following the Labor Department’s report on consumer prices.
