Dollar weakened amid investor focus on trade talks and Brexit

The dollar slipped against the euro in early trade on Wednesday, and the pound rose as investor focus remained on upcoming US-China trade talks scheduled to begin on Thursday in Washington. The prospects for progress in trade talks between the United States and China dimmed after the Trump administration imposed visa restrictions on Chinese officials and expanded its trade blacklist to include some of China's leading AI companies.

The Trump administration is also discussing possible restrictions on capital flows to China, focusing on investments by US government pension funds, Bloomberg said.

 Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said on Tuesday he was open to further interest rate cuts and signaled that the central bank plans to resume raising its balance sheet to ensure that financial markets function smoothly.

Report: EU ready to propose alternative to Irish support problem.

The European Union is ready to offer another solution to the problem of Irish support, The Times reported Wednesday, citing sources familiar with the matter. The last-minute proposal consists of the unilateral abolition of the withdrawal agreement by the Northern Ireland Assembly after the proposed date in 2025.

Yesterday, hopes for a deal between the EU and the UK on Britain's departure dimmed after German Chancellor Angela Merkel told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that Northern Ireland must remain in the customs union to reach an agreement. However, Johnson's spokesman revealed that the British prime minister still wanted to reach an agreement with Brussels. It has also been reported that the EU will discuss postponing Brexit if Downing Street so requests. Postponement may continue until June 2020.
