Solid Gold ~ Dolar AS berjuang cari arah seiring euro mulai kembali temukan jalan

rupiahSolid Gold ~ Dolar AS menghabiskan hari Selasa di wilayah negatif, seiring salah satu saingan utamanya, euro, menguat kembali ke level sebelum tindakan short selling imbas dari aksi dovish Bank Sentral Eropa yang membuat mata uang bersama itu turun tiga minggu lalu.

Euro terangkat oleh data ekonomi yang kuat dari Jerman, negara dengan ekonomi terbesar di Uni Eropa.

Euro naik ke level $ 1,1795 versus dolar – level tertinggi dalam tiga minggu – naik dari level $ 1,1669 pada akhir Senin di New York. Mata uang bersama ini belum diperdagangkan di atas level $ 1,17 sejak 26 Oktober dan bahkan sempat naik ke atas level $ 1,18 di sesi Selasa, menurut data FactSet.

The ICE U.S. Dollar Index terjebak pada tren penurunan dan kehilangan 0,7% menjadi 93,834, menjalani penurunan keempat dalam lima sesi. Indeks Dolar WSJ yang lebih luas turun 0,4% menjadi 87,38.

Pound juga bergerak lebih tinggi ke level $ 1,3164, naik dari level $ 1,3115 pada akhir Senin. Sterling memijakan diri di level tertinggi dua harinya setelah diperdagangkan secara tidak menentu pada awal sesi, seiring inflasi harga konsumen menyentuh level tertinggi lima tahun sebesar 3%, hanya sedikit di bawah perkiraan konsensus FactSet sebesar 3,1%. Sterling masih menghadapi risiko politik dengan pemerintahan Perdana Menteri Theresa May terus diganggu oleh skandal.

Terhadap yen Jepang dolar dibeli di level ¥ 113,44, turun dari posisi ¥ 113,62 pada akhir Senin.

Greenback juga tergelincir terhadap franc Swiss pada hari Selasa, dibeli di level 0,9895 franc versus 0,9964 franc pada Senin malam. (sdm)

The U.S. dollar spent Tuesday solidly in negative territory, as one of its main rivals, the euro, rallied back to the level it was at before the European Central Bank’s dovish tapering action sent it lower three weeks ago.

The shared currency was helped by strong economic data out of Germany, the E.U.’s largest economy.

The euro rose to $1.1795 against the dollar—a three-week high—popping up from $1.1669 late Monday in New York. The shared currency hadn’t traded above $1.17 since Oct. 26 and even briefly rose above the $1.18 level in Tuesday’s session, according to FactSet data.

The ICE U.S. Dollar Index stuck to its downward trend and was off 0.7% at 93.834, facing its fourth loss in five sessions. The broader WSJ Dollar Index shed 0.4% to 87.38.

The pound also moved higher to $1.3164, up from $1.3115 late Monday. Sterling found its two-day high after trading erratically earlier in the session, as consumer price inflation hit a five-year high of 3%, just shy of the FactSet consensus estimate of 3.1%. Sterling still faces political risks as Prime Minister Theresa May’s government continues to be plagued by scandals.

Against the Japanese yen the dollar bought ¥113.44, down versus ¥113.62 late Monday.

The greenback also slipped against Swiss franc on Tuesday, buying 0.9895 francs versus 0.9964 francs late Monday.
