Dollar Rises, Yen and Franc Slump as Risk Appetite Rises

 The dollar rose against the major currencies, especially the yen and the Swiss franc fell during trading Wednesday as demand for safe havens fell in favor of high-risk investments, as the focus shifted towards the European Central Bank meeting tomorrow.

 Trump urges Fed to cut interest rates to "zero or less"

The US Federal Reserve has cut interest rates to zero or less so the United States can begin refinancing its debt, President Donald Trump said on Wednesday. He added that the United States should always pay the lowest interest rate, but the "naivety" of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell does not want to allow it to do what other countries already do.

 "The Fed should cut our interest rates to zero, or lower, and then we should start refinancing our debt," Trump wrote. "The cost of interest can go down, while at the same time it goes on for a long time. We have a wonderful currency, strength and budget." Only the naivety of Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve does not allow us to do what other countries are already doing, a lifetime opportunity that we miss because of "bad minds".

The president also said last week that Powell's appointment as Fed chairman was a mistake.

The markets are following the developments of trade talks between the United States and China and the calm of the dispute between them, as well as the possibility of a British exit from the EU without a deal, which reduced the global uncertainty that affected the markets in the past period.
