Dollar slips, yen flat as trade talk perspectives shift

On Thursday the greenback facilitated versus its main currency rivals and the yuan solidified as worldwide markets remained focused on China-U.S. exchange negotiations in Washington, amid mixed clues about whether the two nations are gaining any ground in settling the issues.

Traders switched from pessimistic to bullish after Bloomberg revealed the U.S. is gauging a money settlement with China as a feature of a halfway arrangement that could see an arranged tax hike one week from now being suspended.

The greenback dropped over 0.2 percent on the common currency and sterling and was 0.1 percent lower versus its key currency adversaries .DXY at 98.995. The common currency added to $1.0987.

The risk-off Japanese yen bounced after a report in the South China Morning Post proposing Sino-U.S. negotiations in Washington were set out toward impasse. Yet, it later surrendered its increases to exchange flat at 107.46 per buck.

The Aussie lifted from seven days low to $0.6747 and the kiwi edged higher to $0.6313.
