Dollar Pushes Higher; Pound Slips as Risk Sentiment Pressured
Thursday, 17 January 2019 16:04 WIB | CURRENCIES | Indeks Dolar Europound

The U.S. dollar pushed higher against a basket of its key rivals on Thursday, building on its recent strong gains, while the pound slipped amid softer risk sentiment.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback™s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was up 0.14% 95.80 by 03:54 AM ET (08:54 AM GMT), after gaining about 1% over the previous five sessions.

The yen, typically sought by investors as a safe haven during times of economic or market stress, gained ground against the greenback, with USD/JPY down 0.28% to 108.76

The euro edged lower against the U.S. currency, with EUR/USD dipping 0.11% to 1.1386 as persistent worries about the euro zone economy weighed.

The pound was weaker against the dollar, with GBP/USD down 0.18% to 1.2857 as uncertainty over Brexit rumbled on. Sterling was a touch lower against the euro, with EUR/GBP inching up 0.14% to 0.8856.
