How to use dampen in a sentence?

  1. Lee Hardman:

    The relative attractiveness of the U.S. dollar has been boosted in the near-term by building concerns over the outlook for growth outside of the U.S., the rising probability of President (Donald) Trump winning a second term and further evidence of the ongoing resilience of the U..S economy, however, the Fed's reluctance to tighten policy should help to dampen upside potential for U.S. yields and the U.S. dollar.

  2. Gary Richards:

    Property developers who specialise in selling to non-dom purchasers may find that the Budget announcements may dampen demand until the details have been fully absorbed.

  3. Lorne Baring:

    The DAX, an export-driven index, is seeing this euro rally feeding straight through into concerns that it will dampen the export ability of the companies.

  4. Stefan Worrall:

    The Nikkei has been closely reflecting the yen's moves this week so the bit of strengthening we saw in the yen overnight seems to have brought the mood down slightly this morning, but we've also got a three-day weekend coming up in Japan and it's not unusual for that to dampen risk appetite after a long week full of activity.

  5. Nobuyuki Nakahara:

    Oil prices are likely to keep falling due to slower Chinese growth and because the years of prices above $100 before the recent plunge were 'abnormal' historically, i would not be surprised if the price falls to as low as around $20... It is purely due to supply and demand. There is a ceiling for oil because high energy prices dampen economic growth.
