Dollar steadies as eyes shift to White House

Dollar steadied against most currencies amid optimism on US-China trade talks while eyes shift to the White House. 

 

Trump officially announced an emergency state to combat the security breaches at the southern border with Mexico. 

 

Trump also announced his displeasure with the recent government funding bill in Congress, which only grants him $1.7 billion to fund the border wall. 

 

Separately, Trump said his administration is still not near a full trade agreement with China. 

 

He nonetheless asserted negotiations are going very well, with financial markets improving in response and nearing recent record highs. 

 

The dollar index steadied at 97.06, with an intraday high at 97.3, and a low at 97.02.
