Dollar Down With COVID19 Worries – The dollar was down on Monday morning in Asia, with optimism over a potential early rollout of COVID-19 vaccines offset by global economic restrictions to curb the spread of the virus.

The FDA is looking to grant approval in mid-December for distribution of BNT162b2, the vaccine candidate produced by Pfizer Inc (NYSE:PFE) and German partner BioNTech (F:22UAy), chief scientific adviser for “Operation Warp Speed” Moncef Slaoui said.

Meanwhile, the euro edged up against the dollar, but continues a struggle to break above the $1.993 resistance level that it also failed to breach during the previous week.

However, some investors remain bullish on the single currency’s longer-term outlook.

The note also raised its forecasts for the euro, now seeing it at $1.2500 by the end of 2021 and $1.3000 at the close of 2022, against the previous $1.2000 and $1.2500 respectively.
