Forex – Dollar higher but upside limited ahead of U.S. healthcare vote- SapForex24

The dollar moved higher against other major currencies on Friday, but gains were expected to remain limited as uncertainty over whether U.S. President Donald Trump’s healthcare bill will be approved continued to weigh.
EUR/USD edged down 0.14% to 1.0768.

Sentiment on the dollar remained vulnerable after Trump warned House Republican lawmakers that he will leave Obamacare in place and move on to tax reform if they do not approve new healthcare legislation in a vote on Friday.

The healthcare vote is seen by investors as a test of his ability to implement key campaign promises such as tax reform and infrastructure spending.
