The dollar climbed, dragging the yen lower, as markets ratcheted up the chance of a U.S. interest-rate increase before Donald Trump�s speech to Congress and Chinese manufacturing data.

A torrent of potentially market-moving events await traders on Tuesday, with a report due on Australian economic growth, culminating in the U.S. president�s address in Washington. The weakening yen gave support to Japanese equities at the start of trading, while shares in Australia slumped.

The odds of an increase in March for U.S. interest rates rose above 70 percent, pushing up the dollar and dragging shorter-maturity Treasuries lower. The chances were only as good as a coin toss at the start of the week. Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William Dudley said the case for tightening has become a lot more compelling. Fed Bank of San Francisco President John Williams said he expects a rate increase to receive �serious consideration� at this month�s meeting. Fed Chair Janet Yellen speaks on Friday.

Ahead of Trump�s speech to Congress at 9 p.m. New York time, the administration�s failure to reach agreement with congressional Republicans on tax cuts and budget principles remained in focus. Speculation on whether Trump will deliver details or be able to convince lawmakers to go along with his proposals had investors unwilling to add to riskier bets with stocks near all-time highs.

The yen slid 0.3 percent to 113.07 per dollar as of 9:03 a.m., a third day of losses. The Bloomberg Dollar Spot Index rose 0.3 percent, for a fourth day of gains.
