The dollar was broadly lower on Wednesday, pressured by a cocktail
of negative factors including heightened concerns over the partial
U.S. government shutdown and tension between the White House

continued to overshadow the market in the longer term.
Gold prices inched lower on Wednesday as the dollar firmed but
hovered near a six‐month high, supported by political instability in
the United States and concerns about a global economic slowdown.
