Dollar drifts down as trade-deal progress stokes cautious risk appetite
Tuesday, 10 September 2019 08:28 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLAR Yen EuroDollar Australia,

The dollar drifted lower on Tuesday as investor appetite for higher risk currencies found support on a report of German stimulus plans, diminishing chances of a no-deal Brexit and hopes of a breakthrough in the Sino-U.S. trade war.

The mood lifted the Australian dollar to a six-week high of $0.6875 and the pound also hit a six-week high of $1.2385 as a British law blocking a no-deal exit from the European Union came into force.

The safe-haven yen touched a five-week low of 107.46 per dollar as risk appetite rose. Moves were modest in early Asian trade, however, with traders broadly remaining on the sidelines ahead of a key European Central Bank meeting on Thursday, at which policymakers are expected to ease monetary policy.

The euro also rallied to as high as $1.0167 following a Reuters report that Germany may set up public investment agencies to boost fiscal stimulus without breaching national spending rules.

Sterling, meanwhile, barely shifted when Britain's parliament voted, as expected, to stymie Prime Minister Boris Johnson's bid for an early election, which prompted him to vow that he would secure a Brexit deal at an EU summit next month.
