[size=36]The dollar remains high, but the rise in oil supports the commodity-linked currencies[/size]
Oil prices rose due to hopes for the success of US diplomacy in persuading Saudi Arabia and Russia to end the price war that pushed crude markets to their lowest levels in more than 20 years, and a Bloomberg report on China's oil purchases.
This raised the commodity-linked currencies, as the Australian dollar rose 0.6 percent to $ 0.6110, and the Canadian dollar strengthened 0.65 percent to 1.4146 Canadian dollars.
But against most major currencies, the dollar remained strong due to the state of satisfaction of investors, concerned about the major disruption of international trade caused by the Corona pandemic, resulting from the possession of the dollar.
The dollar index settled against a basket of six major currencies at 99.470, after gaining 0.53 percent overnight, as the US currency rose against most other major currencies.
The euro fell 0.1 percent to $ 1.0947 after falling 0.69 percent on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the yen, which is a safe haven, retreated slightly, trading at 107.24 yen to the dollar, after hitting a two-week high of 106.925 on Wednesday.
In Asia, the Indonesian rupiah fell 0.5 percent, approaching the 22-year low reached last month.
The Brazilian real and the South African rand hit record lows on Wednesday, while the Turkish lira fell to its lowest level in two years. End / 29
