The closely watched conversation between Chinese President Xi Jinping and U.S.President Joe Biden yielded no immediate outcomes but struck a positive tone and was seen as a chance to improve relations.

In the Eurozone, the president of European Central Bank Lagarde reiterated dovish stance that a tight monetary policy will throttle the economic recovery in Europe, supporting US dollar index.

Persistent supply chain bottlenecks and soaring energy costs are slowing euro zone growth and will keep inflation high for even longer than had been thought, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said.

The ECB has banked on a rapid decline in inflation next year but policymakers are now openly admitting that their forecasts, already revised up several times, are still too low, as stress in the global economy takes a toll.

But Lagarde continued to push back on calls and market bets for tighter policy, repeating the ECB’s message that conditions for higher interest rates are unlikely to be met next year as inflation is still seen back below the bank’s 2% target farther out.
