Evergreen buck goes up
On Tuesday, the evergreen buck surged due to the fact that China and America are on the verge of extending trade negotiations into Wednesday.
Officials from the two countries are expected to meet in Beijing and negotiations are going to be extended to a third day, backing a hoped that the two leading economies around the globe could have their differences resolved before a March 1 deadline.
At the U.S. delegation's hotel, Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy at the US Department of Energy, Steven Winberg confirmed the extension to journalists. However, the US statesman didn’t answer other questions.

The evergreen buck surged versus the Japanese yen. The currency pair USD/JPY headed north by 0.05% trading at 108.73.
Market participants are also looking ahead to a speech from US leader, in which he’s anticipated to address the government shutdown as well as building a wall on the border with Mexico. American leader has told that he won’t have a budget signed unless it includes financing for that wall. His remark has resulted in an impasse with Congress.
