U.S. Dollar Falls; Brexit, Sino-U.S. Trade Development in Spotlight
Friday, 22 March 2019 14:12 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLARGBP/USD

The U.S. dollar fell on Friday in Asia as traders digested the latest news on Brexit and Sino-U.S. trade development.

The U.S. dollar index that tracks the greenback against a basket of other currencies was down 0.2% to 95.803 by 12:45 AM ET (04:45 GMT).

High-level officials including U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He are due to meet in Beijing for a fresh round of talks next week.

Meanwhile, the GBP/USD pair rose 0.2% to 1.3136 after the European Union delayed the Brexit date by two weeks if U.K. parliament does not endorse U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's withdrawal deal next week.
