The dollar climbed towards a three-week high on Thursday as risk appetite deteriorated broadly after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell dismissed speculation about negative interest rates.

The U.S. dollar edged higher against a basket of currencies on Wednesday, after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell rejected the idea of using negative interest rates as a stimulative tool, even as he sounded a gloomy note about economic growth.

Sterling extended Monday’s losses on Tuesday, hitting a 20-day low versus the euro, as continued confusion over government plans to ease lockdown measures, the worst COVID-19 death toll in Europe and revived Brexit risks all weighed on the pound.

The dollar fell on Tuesday as the mood turned cautious a day ahead of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech on economic issues and as investors weighed the chances of negative U.S. interest rates.

Sterling dipped against the dollar on Monday as rising U.S. Treasury yields put the greenback in demand, with investors cautious about the easing of coronavirus lockdown measures in Britain.

The dollar, which typically functions as a safe-haven investment, rose on Monday even as investors added risk to their portfolios, buying U.S. stocks and selling Treasury bonds.

Economists expect most central European currencies to rebound or remain stable over the next 12 months as the region’s economies recover more quickly from the coronavirus pandemic than western counterparts, a Reuters poll showed.

The impact of euro exchange rate movements on inflation has declined, and its impact on euro zone consumer prices is close to insignificant, fresh research from the European Central Bank suggested on Monday.

The U.S. dollar rose against some currencies on Friday after data showed the world’s largest economy lost fewer jobs than expected last month on fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.

As temperature checks and face masks become the new normal for airports around the world, Dubai Airport CEO Paul Griffiths warns that the new distancing measures may have a long-lasting impact on air travel — and potentially even its prices.
