The US and China Had a "Constructive" Dialogue. FOMC Minutes and Bank of Canada Meeting Are in the Focus of Attention

The US dollar continues to keep positions against a basket of major currencies. Yesterday, the US dollar index (#DX) closed trading session in the positive zone (+0.11%). Investors expect the publication of the FOMC meeting minutes, as well as the speech by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell with a semi-annual monetary report in the House Committee on Financial Services. The official is expected to give insight into how the next Fed meeting will be held and what to expect from it.

White House Economic Advisor, Larry Kudlow, said that US Trade Representative, Robert Lighthizer, and Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, had “constructive” phone talks with Chinese Vice Premier, Liu He, and Commerce Minister, Zhong Shan, yesterday. Both parties continue to make efforts to resolve the trade conflict. Kudlow said the talks "went well." It is also reported that the parties plan a personal meeting, but Kudlow believes that there is no easy way to reach a trade deal.

The Bank of Canada meeting will also take place today. It is expected that the regulator will keep the key marks of monetary policy at the same level. We recommend paying attention to the comments by the Central Bank representatives.
