Greenback moves up

Greenback moves up

On Monday, the evergreen buck soared versus a basket of currencies, drifting away from the previous week's 6-1/2-month minimums and also shrugging off news of North Korea's new missile test because investor attention shifted to the Fed’s expected interest rate lift already next month.

The dollar index, tracking the evergreen buck versus a basket of six counterparts, grew 0.1%, hitting 97.502, staying above the previous week's value of 96.797, the lowest outcome since Nov. 9.

On Monday, John Williams, San Francisco Federal Reserve President told in Singapore that medium-term trends in American inflation were still favorable enough, notwithstanding some recent soft consumer price data.

The American economy was at or close to the Fed’s objectives of full employment as well as stable prices, as Williams informed, adding that the Fed was eager to ensure financial markets stayed calm because the major US bank slowly returned its interest-rate policy to what markets consider normal.

The US dollar tacked on moderately to 111.37 yen , holding its ground notwithstanding a cautious backdrop, which normally underpins Japan's perceived safe-haven currency.
