The euro staggered near a three-month low against the dollar on Wednesday after disappointing German data raised doubts about the strength of the economic recovery, while the dollar awaited the Federal Reserve’s minutes from its last policy meeting.

The single currency changed hands at $1.1820, having touched a three-month low of $1.1806 on Tuesday. Against the yen, it fell to 130.81 yen, edging near its two-month low of 130.05 set on June 21.


Shares in Asia-Pacific were mixed in Wednesday morning trade following losses on Wall Street with the S&P 500 ending its seven-day winning streak. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan traded 0.46% lower.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index led losses among the region’s major markets, falling 0.9%. Mainland Chinese stocks were mixed, with the Shanghai composite slipping 0.19% while the Shenzhen component advanced 0.333%. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 dropped 0.75% while the Topix index declined 0.52%. South Korea’s Kospi shed 0.68%. Over in Australia, the S&P/ASX 200 rose 0.58%.

Overnight on Wall Street, the S&P 500 shed 0.2% to 4,343.54 — snapping a seven-day winning streak. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 208.98 points to 34,577.37 while the Nasdaq Composite closed at a new record, rising 0.17% to 14,663.64.


Oil prices steadied on Wednesday after a steep drop in the previous session, following the cancellation of talks among OPEC+ producers that raised the prospect that the world’s major crude exporters will turn on the taps to gain market share.

Brent crude was up 3 cents at $74.56 a barrel , after slumping more than 3% on Tuesday. U.S. oil was up 7 cents at $73.44 a barrel, having declined by more than 2% in the previous session.
