Dollar steadies after Biden sworn into office

The US dollar held steadily against its peers on Wednesday, after the inauguration of President Joe Biden.

 

Former US President Donald Trump gave a farewell speech upon leaving the White House and wished Biden's administration success and safety and stability for the country.

 

Biden stated during his inauguration speech that the American people must unite and overcome differences and divisions, and called on citizens to wear masks to prevent the coronavirus.

 

News agencies reported that Biden intends to cancel some of his predecessor Trump's decisions including rejoining the climate change agreement and the World Health Organization, in addition to canceling the construction of the US-Mexico border wall.

 

The dollar index held against a basket of major currencies at 90.4 points as of 18:39 GMT, after hitting a high of 90.7 points and a low of 90.2 points.
