Dollar holds near 2-1/2-month yen high on U.S.-China partial deal, pound stands tall

The dollar held near a 2 1/2-month high against the yen on Monday after Washington and Beijing announced progress towards a trade deal, while sterling hovered near a three-month peak on hopes for an orderly British exit from the European Union. On Friday, the dollar strengthened against the safe-haven yen to as much as 108.63 yen, its highest level since August 1, before U.S. President Donald Trump said the United States and China had reached a 'Phase 1' trade deal.

Dollar Hits Two-Month High as Brexit Fears Hit Sterling
Monday, 29 July 2019 15:44 WIB | CURRENCIES | Indeks DolarDolar ASpoundPoundsterling

The dollar was touching its highest level in two months in early trading in Europe Monday, rising sharply against a British pound that came under renewed attack on rising fears of a œhard Brexit.

The pound fell to its lowest in nearly three years against the dollar after Michael Gove, a senior figure in the new government, wrote that there is now a œvery real possibility of the U.K. crashing out of the EU on Oct. 31 without transitional arrangements in place to cushion the blow to the economy.

By contrast, Prime Minister Boris Johnson had said repeatedly during his recent leadership campaign that there was only a œone in a million chance of the U.K. leaving the EU without a transitional deal, despite saying that the deal drawn up by Theresa May was œdead and despite the lack of time available to negotiate a new one before the deadline.

By 3:50 AM ET (0750 GMT), the pound was at $1.2339, just above an intraday low of $1.2335, its lowest since October 2016. The euro also pushed above 90 pence for the first time in three weeks to stand at 0.9012 GBP.

The dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of currencies, was at 97.828, just five ticks below its intraday high, and consolidating gains made on Friday on the back of slightly stronger-than-expected gross domestic product data for the second quarter.
