Dollar fell on anticipation of trade tensions and interest rates

The dollar fell for a second straight day on Wednesday on growing expectations for US interest rate cuts next week as high-yielding currencies suffered from continuing trade tensions.

The US dollar was trading near two-month lows against a basket of currencies on Wednesday, as expectations that the Federal Reserve may cut interest rates in the coming months in response to the impact of global trade tensions that caused the currency pressure. Investors are now focusing on the upcoming Federal Policy Meeting on June 18-19 and the type of signals the central bank can give in the direction of monetary policy.

The dollar has been pressured by a sharp drop in yields on long-term US Treasury bonds, which fell to a two-year low on Friday after a weak US jobs report raised expectations the Federal Reserve would cut interest rates.

Concerns over the trade war and prospects for an end to the US-China conflict have been renewed after President Donald Trump said he was not accused of any agreement with Beijing, in which the latter did not abide by the terms reached in previous negotiations. The trade frictions between the world's two largest economies began to appear in the data as Chinese factory price inflation slowed in May as caution in statements by Federal Reserve officials grew.

The single currency was slightly hurt by US President Donald Trump's claim to Europe to devalue the euro, which has risen nearly 1.4 percent against the dollar since the beginning of June.
