Greenback adds in Asia as markets look to Fed

On Monday, the evergreen buck managed to grow in Asia because financial markets looked ahead to the Fed this week – the key US bank is generally anticipated to have its rates lifted. Additionally, the launch of bitcoin futures drew attention too with the initial trade climbing up.

The currency pair USD/JPY rallied 0.12% being worth 113.62. AUD/USD hit 0.7512, soaring 0.04%. As for bitcoin futures, they turned to be the most-traded asset on the Chicago-based CBOE Global Markets exchange, starting at $15,460 and leaping to $16,660.

Evaluating the greenback’s value versus a basket of six crucial currencies, the US dollar index gained 0.02% hitting 93.86.

This week the Federal Reserve meets and it’s believed to raise interest rates by about a quarter point. Meanwhile, the European Central Bank, BoE as well as the Swiss National Bank are also expected to hold monetary policy gatherings, although no changes are anticipated.
