Dollar falls as it heads for weekly losses

The dollar fell against most major currencies on Tuesday as markets headed for metals as a safe haven following a terrorist incident in New Zealand as well as the rebound in equity markets.

 

Precious metals received support from being a safe haven following a terrorist attack on two mosques in New Zealand that killed some 50 people and wounded more.

 

Stock markets rebounded amid renewed hopes in US-China trade negotiations, especially after US President George W. Bush said the talks with Beijing were going well.

 

In terms of economic data, industrial production in the US rose 0.1% last month, while the Empire State Manufacturing Index fell to 3.7 points.

 

As of 16:48 GMT, dollar index fell by 0.1% to 96.5 points , versus a day high of 96.7 points and a low of 96.5 points.
