- Dollar on tenterhooks as payrolls test looms
- Asia shares off 3-month highs, caution ahead of U.S. payrolls
- Oil hits over 1-year high on OPEC+ supply discipline, demand prospects
The U.S. dollar was wavering above major support levels on Thursday, as traders awaited a batch of U.S. economic data that could set the tone at central bank meetings later this month.
Against the euro the dollar traded at $1.2209 after unwinding a small Wednesday rally. The greenback lost 1.7% on the euro in May, but did not fall past strong support at $1.2266. It was steady at 109.64 yen.
In Asia, startling gains in the Chinese yuan this week had also sparked speculation about shifts in Chinese policymakers’ stance on the currency, although it eased slightly to 6.3807 in early offshore trade on Thursday.
The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, also held at 89.919 where it seems to have found strong support in recent weeks.
Asian shares were a touch below a recent three-month top on Thursday with China a tad weaker as investors weighed inflation concerns ahead of key U.S. economic data while oil prices rose to near 1-1/2 year highs.
MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan rose 0.3% to 711 points. It went as high as 712.57 on Wednesday, a level not seen since early March.
Japan’s Nikkei added 0.4%. Australian shares climbed to all-time highs as investors cheered stronger-than-expected economic growth data released on Wednesday. Chinese shares were marginally softer.
Oil prices surged on Wednesday, hitting their highest in more than a year from a decision by OPEC and allies to stick to the plan to gradually restore supply, along with the slow pace of nuclear talks between Iran and the United States.
Brent rose $1.1, or 1.6%, to settle at $71.35 a barrel. It reached $71.48 a barrel, its highest since January 2020. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude rose $1.11, or 1.6%, to settle at $68.83 a barrel. It hit $69.00 during the session, its highest since October 2018.
