The dollar began a week full of big economic data on a firm footing, with investors wary of the Federal Reserve beginning its exit from super-supportive policy even as cases of the coronavirus surge.

It maintained gains early in the Asia session to hold the common Euro  currency at $1.1810. It was also steady at 109.91 Japanese yen. In morning trade, the Aussie was marginally firmer at $0.7362, but it has struggled to stay above $0.74. The kiwi was marginally weaker at $0.7115 but has likewise battled to break out of a months-long range despite the Reserve Bank of New Zealand preparing for interest rate hikes.


Asian shares made a guarded start on Monday to a week packed with important U.S. and Chinese economic data and the launch of Apple’s latest iPhones, while the Nikkei was tantalisingly near heights last visited in 1990.

Japanese shares have been on a tear as hopes for fresh stimulus from a new Prime Minister saw the Nikkei surge 4.3% last week. The Topix has already scaled that peak, while the Nikkei turned hesitant early on Monday. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan eased 0.1%, after bouncing on Friday.


Oil prices climbed on Monday to a one-week high in a second straight session of gains as concerns over U.S. supplies following damage from Hurricane Ida supported the market, along with expectations for higher demand.

Brent crude rose 48 cents, or 0.7% to $73.40 a barrel, and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude also added 49 cents, or 0.7%, to $70.21 a barrel. Both markets were at their highest since Sept. 3 earlier in the session.
