The Dollar rallied against major currencies during European trade

2018-10-09 10:04 am | Resource: News | No Views : 83

 
The dollar rose against a basket of currencies on Tuesday and the yen remained a safe haven in dealing cautiously with rising US bond yields and concerns about global growth prospects that weighed on risk appetite. The yield on 10-year US Treasury bonds rose 3.25% for the first time since 2011

China will not use the yuan's exchange rate as a weapon in the ongoing trade war with the United States, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Tuesday. In addition, the comments made by an unnamed high-level official from the US Treasury on "non-market mechanisms" in Beijing are "baseless speculation," a foreign ministry spokesman added.

The sell-off in Treasuries prompted expectations of a possible rise in interest rates from the Federal Reserve. Rising bond yields have hurt stock demand in recent sessions, dampening risk appetite.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut its global growth forecast to 3.7%, the report said on Tuesday. The global economy grew only 3.7 percent in 2018 and 2019, down from 3.9 percent.
