128298Dollar at 1-Month High10/29/2020 3:17:00 PM"The dollar index strengthened further for the second straight session to around 94 on Thursday, the highest on a closing basis in near a month, as traders rush to the safety of the greenback amid rising coronavirus infections and a potentially contested election result in the US. Joe Biden continues to lead the polls but four years ago the polls proved to be wrong and Donald Trump won the election. Meanwhile, recent GDP data showed the US economy grew at a record 33.1% in Q3, well above forecasts of 31%, suggesting the economy is gaining momentum after the big hit from the pandemic in Q2. The Euro also declined and pushed the dollar further up after ECB President Christine Lagarde said that rising COVID-19 cases and new restrictive measures have led to a ""clear deterioration"" in the bloc's near-term outlook."United StatesCurrencyDXY/united-states/currency
