The main events on March 27, 2017

The dollar fell to its lowest level against the yen since late November in Asia on Monday on heightened political risk concerns as a Republican-controlled Congress and presidency are in focus to deliver on economic plans for tax cuts and spending following a failed effort to reform healthcare.
The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a trade-weighted basket of six major currencies, dropped 0.47% to 99.12.

Gold prices gained in early Asia on Monday as investors see a week of political risk events, including Britain's move to formally start its break from the European Union. Gold rose 0.73% to $1,252.90

Oil prices fell on Monday as rising U.S. drilling activity outweighed talks that an OPEC-led production cut initially due to end in mid-2017 may be extended. Brent eased 22 cents, or 0.4 percent, from their last close to $50.58 per barrel. WTI down 32 cents, or 0.7 percent, at $47.65 a barrel.
