Dollar rises against global counterparts

The U.S. dollar began Tuesday's trading by strengthening its positions against most of the major currencies, as traders adjusted their expectations for a Federal Reserve interest rate cut.

Current data from CME FedWatch indicates that the markets are now pricing in a 61.3% chance of a Fed rate cut in June, compared to a likelihood of about 70.1% a week ago.

The U.S. Dollar Index (DXY), which tracks its performance against six major world currencies, rose by 0.17% to 105.07.

On Monday, U.S. stock indices mostly fell due to investor concerns over the timing of the Federal Reserve's interest rate cuts.

The EUR/USD pair dropped by 0.13% to 1.0728, while the GBP/USD pair increased by 0.04% to 1.2522.

Despite the British economy continuing to contract in the fourth quarter of 2023, many analysts have voiced predictions of its growth in the first quarter.
