The dollar continued to rise this morning, testing its highest level since March, after Wednesday's ISM survey showed better-than-expected service-sector activity, raising market expectations for further Fed tightening.
The euro fell as German industrial output fell for the third month in a row, and the onshore yuan fell to its lowest level since 2007. The focus shifts to the slew of Fed speakers scheduled for Thursday.

The United States and the European Union are working on an agreement that would impose new tariffs on excess steel production from China and other countries, as well as put a Trump-era trade conflict behind them.

According to analysts, a model of US consumption that takes into account sentiment, as well as income, wealth, and interest rates, suggests that spending should have already dropped enough to tip the economy into recession.
