2018-09-24 01:04 pm | Resource: News | No Views : 46



The dollar rose on Monday to cut a two-week downtrend as investors bought the greenback ahead of the Federal Reserve's widely anticipated interest rate hike this week, while fears of trade wars showed investor appetite for risk.

The dollar has struggled as fears over a trade war fade, and central banks in Turkey's emerging markets have taken firm steps to stabilize their markets.

Business War

Today's trading session entered a new round of tariffs between the United States and China entered into force from 12:01 Beijing time. Where Washington imposed a 10 percent tax on Chinese imports worth 200 billion dollars, while Beijing responded by targeting 60 billion dollars of US goods at a tariff ranging between 5% and 10%. Shortly after the tariffs were implemented, the State Council issued a white paper accusing the United States of "abandoning the basic rules of mutual respect and equal consultation that guide international relations."
