Indian Rupee at 3 Month High

  Uncertainty over whether Trump will offer enough details on
his plans for infrastructure spending and tax reforms, were
helping to weigh on the dollar, traders said.    
    "The market is positioning for disappointment," said Stephen
Innes, a senior trader for FX broker OANDA in Singapore.      
    "Traders are going to start asking themselves undoubtedly,
the longer the tax reform gets played out, is the market's
expectations too high?"    
    At the same time, traders will probably be wary of selling
the dollar aggressively ahead of Trump's address, Innes said.
