Dollar Little Changed as Brexit Deadline Approaches
Monday, 8 April 2019 15:20 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLAR Indeks DolarDolar AS

Foreign exchange markets have started the week quietly in Europe, with both the major European currencies in holding patterns ahead of a crucial week for Brexit, while the dollar is still drifting as it waits for hard news of trade deal between the U.S. and China.

The European Union has to decide at a summit on Wednesday whether it's willing to push back the deadline for the U.K.'s departure beyond the default date of Friday.

Expectations are that the EU will offer some sort of extension, not least in order to avoid triggering a hard 'no-deal Brexit™ that would badly disrupt the Irish economy. But French President Emmanuel Macron signalled he wanted tough political conditions for an extension, in order to be sure that the U.K. wouldn™t disrupt the EU™s agenda as it prepares to leave.

At 04:20 AM ET (0820 GMT), sterling was at $1.3050, up 0.1% from late Friday in Europe, while it was also at 1.1627 against the euro, effectively unchanged. The euro was at $1.1225, not far above the lows of last week, unmoved by weaker-than-expected German trade data that rounded off a miserable February for the eurozone's largest economy.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was at 96.910, supported still by a broadly positive U.S. employment report on Friday that showed a sharp bounce in hiring and a modest easing of wage inflation.
