US Dollar attention to US politics

Despite the index is trading on the defensive early in the European morning, it manages well to keep business in the upper bound of the recent range and close to the critical up barrier at 95.00 the figure.

USD remains vigilant on the developments in the US political scenario, where headlines from the tax reform proposed by the White House keep acting as the main drivers for the buck so far.

In this regard, Republicans tax writers have been facing a strong resistance from the corporate sector following the proposal of a tax on cross-border payments by multinational companies.

In the data space, nothing worth mentioning other than the weekly report on US crude oil inventories by the EIA, expected later in the NA session.
