Greenback reaches fresh 6-month minimums as Trump woes weigh

On Wednesday, the greenback touched fresh six-month minimums versus a basket of the other crucial currencies because mounting political turmoil in America along with dismal economic data weighed.

The US dollar index, which estimates the US dollar’s value against a trade-weighted basket of six crucial currencies, lost 0.18%, showing 97.92, having touched an overnight minimum of 97.76, the weakest value since November 9.

The index concluded last trading session down 0.81%.

The US dollar found itself under renewed selling pressure, reacting to news that Donald Trump urged currently fired FBI Director James Comey in February to stop an investigation into ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s relationships with Russia.

Against the Japanese yen, the greenback sagged to one-and-a-half week minimums, with USD/JPY sliding 0.63% to 112.39.

The currency pair EUR/USD showed 1.1096, having ascended to an overnight peak of 1.1122, the most impressive outcome since November 9.
