Dollar Gains With Bonds; Pound Falls on Brexit
Thursday, 12 October 2017 20:06 WIB | CURRENCIES | Indeks DolarDolar AS

Bonds gained and the dollar nudged higher as investor focus switched back to central banks after the release of minutes of last month™s Federal Reserve meeting. The British pound slumped after the EU™s chief negotiator said Brexit talks had reached a deadlock.

Fed officials debated hard last month over whether forces holding inflation down were persistent or temporary. Investors are still betting they will press ahead with an interest-rate hike in December. The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was little changed and the euro remained steady as Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy kept pressure on Catalan separatists. S&P 500 Index futures headed lower and oil halted a three-day rally.

As investors digest the Fed minutes, the selection of Chair Janet Yellen™s replacement is also coming into focus. President Donald Trump is meeting this week with Stanford University economist and rates hawk John Taylor, who is on the shortlist of candidates, according to people familiar. Meanwhile, there is a lineup of global central bank speakers later on Thursday in Washington, who may give traders further clues to the outlook for monetary policy in their respective regions.

Meanwhile, the European Union said scant progress has been made in the latest round of Brexit talks, increasing the chances of a messy departure as time is running out to clinch a deal. Lack of sufficient progress adds to pressure on businesses to speed up contingency plans for what could be a chaotic withdrawal in March 2019.

The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index gained 0.1 percent to 1,164.31. The euro dipped 0.1 percent to $1.1852. The British pound decreased 0.7 percent to $1.3134. The Japanese yen advanced 0.2 percent to 112.33 per dollar, the strongest in more than two weeks.
