Dollar Rises on Possibility of More Fed Rate Hikes
Friday, 30 November 2018 17:58 WIB | CURRENCIES |DolarDolar AS

The dollar inched up on Friday, as investors turned their focus to the G20 summit that kicks off later in the day in Argentina.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback™s strength against a basket of six major currencies, rose 0.22% to 96.91 as of 5:19 AM ET (10:19 GMT).

U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping are expected to meet on the sidelines of the G20 summit this weekend. It remains uncertain if the two will actually make a deal, with Trump still planning to implement an increase in tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods on Jan. 1.

Investors were also focused on possible rate hikes from the Federal Reserve. Fed meeting minutes released on Thursday showed the central bank is expecting to hike interest rates but did not give a timeline.
