The dollar held firm on Monday after slightly softer-than-expected U.S. inflation did little to chip away investors’ conviction that the Federal Reserve could tighten monetary policy if consumer price pressures continue to intensify.

The dollar’s index against six other major currencies was steady at 91.793 , having recovered from Friday’s low of 91.524 hit in the wake of the inflation readings.

The euro was little changed at $1.19385 , struggling to recover the $1.20 level while the dollar consolidated at 110.80 yen , not far from Wednesday’s 15-month high of 110.105.


Asian shares got the week off to a cautious start on Monday as a spike in coronavirus cases across Asia over the weekend hurt investor sentiment while oil hovered around 2-1/2 year highs.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was last a shade weaker at 703.17, still near a two-week high of 705.35 made on June 16. Australian shares  slipped 0.3% while South Korea’s KOSPI index  was slightly higher. Japan’s Nikkei  was 0.1% weaker.


Oil prices climbed to their highest since October 2018 in early Asian trading on expectations demand growth will outstrip supply and OPEC+ will be cautious in returning more crude to the market from August.

Brent futures rose 7 cents to $76.25 a barrel, while U.S. crude added 6 cents to $74.11.
