US dollar climbs to new 20-year high

The US dollar climbed to a new two-decade high today after Russia said it was mobilizing 300,000 military reserves in an escalation of the war in Ukraine.

The surge also comes ahead of another expected aggressive Federal Reserve interest rate hike.

The British pound dropped to just above $1.13, taking it to a fresh 37-year low, before slightly recovering.
