Dollar hits two-week high on U.S.-China trade fears
Friday, 13 July 2018 23:59 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLAR Indeks Dolar

The dollar rose on Friday to a two-week peak against a basket of currencies after data showing a record Chinese trade surplus, which may add fuel to U.S.-China trade tensions, spurring more investors to pile into the safety of the greenback.

Upbeat comments on the U.S. economy from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell also stoked demand for the dollar, analysts said.

The yen fell to a six-month trough against the greenback. The euro and yuan also weakened against the U.S. currency.

At 10:09 a.m. (1409 GMT), an index that tracks the dollar against the yen, euro and four other currencies rose 0.2 percent to 94.988 after touching 95.241 earlier, which was the highest since June 29.

The yen hit a six-month low at 112.79 yen per dollar before recovering to 112.51 yen.

The euro fell to a nine-day low at $1.1610, while the yuan fell half a percent in offshore markets to as low as 6.7250, near an 11-month trough of 6.7326 on July 3.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday that the United States and China might reopen trade talks, briefly easing concerns about the trade dispute.
