The greenback started the week in odds, trading sideways against other currencies. But the USD later bounced back after receiving support as safe-haven Treasury yields recovered.
Traders in the FX market remain on their feet as tensions between the United States and China heighten. Just recently, Washington and Beijing threatened to add fresh tariffs on each other’s exports amounting to billions of dollars.
While both the greenback and yuan absorb the shocks from the conflict, other safe-haven assets benefit from the dispute. The Japanese yen rallied last week after receiving support from the US treasury yield curve news.
