The DXY Index, which measures the dollar against a basket of stronger currencies, retreated today. Demand for the security of the US currency was low even amid a record number of Covid-19 cases in several countries, with a modest agenda on a day and lower-than-expected figures in the United States.
In New York late afternoon, the dollar rose to 114.98 yen, the euro rose to $1.1346 and the pound rose to $1.3487. The DXY closed at 95.929 points, down 0.28%.
The DXY index showed gains earlier in the day, under pressure from the pound and the euro, amid news about the microscopic version of Covid-19 in Europe. However, later the movement reversed. However, amid the year-end break, there is a slight turning point in the week markets.
On the agenda for indicators, pending real estate sales in the US declined 2.2% in November compared to October, compared to 0.8% growth forecast by analysts consulted by the Wall Street Journal.
Against other currencies, the dollar rose to 12,6503 liters from 11.8249 liters yesterday afternoon. Turkey’s currency remains under pressure even after local BC reaffirmed its commitment to inflation targeting today. Investors are cautious with the country facing pressure from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to cut interest rates for the central bank, even as inflation is already at around 20% a year.
