Euro edges up ahead of Trump-Juncker talks
Wednesday, 25 July 2018 15:14 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLAR Yen EuroDolar ASAussie

The euro edged higher on Wednesday ahead of a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker but gains were limited with investors cautious about a trade rift between the two powers.

Lack of clarity over where a brewing trade spat between the U.S. and Europe is heading kept most major currencies, including the U.S. dollar, range-bound on Wednesday as Juncker traveled to Washington for trade-focused talks with Trump.

The talks come after the U.S. imposed tariffs on European Union steel and aluminum and Trump™s threats to extend those measures to EU-made cars.

The single currency was up 0.1 percent at $1.1694. The dollar versus a basket of major currencies  traded broadly flat at 95.55.

Investors were also eyeing a European Central Bank (ECB) policy meeting on Thursday for direction.

Against the yen, the dollar was 0.1 percent higher at 111.32 yen per dollar.

The Australian dollar slumped after data on Wednesday showed inflation remained stubbornly low last quarter despite fairly robust economic growth. It traded 0.2 percent lower at $0.7407.
