Aside from the economic indicators, the Federal Reserve’s insistence that it will keep financial conditions as lenient as possible until the US economy heals from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic seems to be making it difficult for the greenback to attract new investors."United StatesCurrencyDXY/united-states/currency
