Global financial markets are full of optimism ahead of essential events this week. Equities are gaining strength across the globe, the risk appetite is rising and the demand for high-yield currencies is robust. The US dollar index measuring the greenback’s strength versus the volume-weighted basket of six major currencies is under the selling pressure, losing 0.68% of its value in two days.
