The dollar erased its weekly gains, closing marginally lower by 0.02% to 96.8 after the US Federal Reserve’s Williams commented on the need for the central bank to “act quickly” as economic growth slows, fuelling market players to add bets on a 50-basis point (bps) cut in July’s FOMC meeting.
The US dollar continued to trend higher, posting a weekly gain of 0.55% to 97.9 amid the deepening US-China trade rift. China announced it will impose new tariffs on US$60bil of US imports, from June 1. But trade concerns eased slightly following President Donald Trump’s remark mid-week suggesting the door remained open on a potential US-China trade deal.
THE dollar’s strength was broad-based, supported by safe-haven play after President Donald Trump tweeted about raising current tariffs from 10% to 25% on US$200bil worth of Chinese imports and accused the Chinese of backpedalling on trade talks. However, the US dollar erased its weekly gains after April core producer prices unexpectedly edged lower to 0.1% month-on-month (m-o-m) from 0.3% m-o-m in March (consensus: 0.2%).
