During today's Asian trading, the US dollar rose against the euro and the pound, fell against the Australian and New Zealand dollars and consolidated against the yen. Investors are assessing geopolitical risks and statements by representatives of the US Federal Reserve System.

Markets' attention on Tuesday is focused on the situation in eastern Ukraine, where there is an escalation of tension, increasing demand for protective assets, including the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen.

The day before, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees recognizing the independence of the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics (DPR and LPR). In addition, the President instructed the armed forces of the Russian Federation to perform the functions of maintaining peace in the self-proclaimed republics.

Against the background of this news, the prospect of a meeting between Putin and US President Joe Biden, which supported the markets the day before, seems less and less likely.

Meanwhile, yesterday, a Federal Reserve Board Governor Michelle Bowman suggested that an increase in the key rate in March by 50 basis points at once may be justified if the inflation indicator, which will be published before the meeting, will be higher than forecasts.

The ICE index, which tracks the dynamics of the dollar against six currencies (euro, swiss franc, yen, canadian dollar, pound sterling and swedish krona) rose by 0.10%.
