Donald Trump says that trade talks are close to the end.
Aussie lowered after the forecast of rate cuts.
Dollar climbs on the Pound, Euro, and Yen.
On Wednesday, the dollar had modest gains. The positive trade talks between the U.S. and China made traders look ahead. Monetary policy knocked the Aussie.
On Tuesday, the dollar traded against the yen at a two-week high of 109.205. Now it traded at 109.12 yen. As long as Beijing and Washington are moving closer to sign a deal for the ending of a 16-month trade war, the greenback will find support.
The United States dollar became a little higher against the British pound and the euro. Recently the dollar had a value of $1.2853 per pound and $1.1012 per euro. Both levels changed this week, but slightly.
The Aussie fell by 0.2% to $0.6774. Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, which is on Thursday in the U.S., trade is slowing.
Head of FX strategy at National Australia Bank in Sydney, Ray Attrill said that the market is exhausted playing ping pong of headlines concerning trade.
The trade deal is going to conclude; this is what equity markets still want to believe and push optimistically, adds Ray Attrill.
Trade Talks Again
To defuse the trade war, Washington is at the “final throes” of work around the agreement, claims the United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday.
But a potentially critical point with China might be that Trump underlined Washington’s support for the Hong Kong protesters.
Director of the forex at Societe Generale in Tokyo, Kyosuke Suzuki, thinks that Trump’s comment postponed an agreement signing at least until the weekend.
Washington scheduled to impose even more tariffs on the Chinese Goods on December 15. If the agreement will not conclude, it is interesting what will happen on that date.
This war already harmed the global economy a lot. The outcome of phase one will be crucial.
