FX Signals – Dollar Gains From Tech Stocks Turmoil; Sterling Weakens

FxPremiere.com – The dollar gained in early European trade Wednesday, with the sharp selloff in U.S. equity markets prompting traders to ditch riskier currencies in favor of the world’s reserve currency.

At 3 AM ET (0700 GMT), the Dollar Index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six other currencies, was up 0.1% at 93.562. The index has risen just short of 1% over the last week, climbing from the more than two-year lows it touched earlier in the month.

“It might force some position unwinding in other parts of the market, and that’s probably what we’re seeing right now,” he said.
