Monday, 29 October 2018 16:15 WIB | CURRENCIES | Indeks Dolar EuroDolar ASPoundsterling

The dollar edged higher against a basket of the other major currencies on Monday, holding close to Friday's 10-week highs as investors around the globe remained cautious, while the euro slipped following weekend elections in Germany.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback™s strength against a basket of six major currencies, edged up 0.14% to 96.26 by 04:37 AM ET (08:37 AM GMT), not far from the 10 “week high of 96.62 set on Friday.

Demand for the dollar continued to be underpinned after data on Friday showing that the U.S. economy slowed less than expected in the third quarter.

Market sentiment remained fragile amid concerns over a slew of economic and geopolitical issues.

The euro was a touch lower, with EUR/USD down 0.1% to 1.1390 following a setback for German Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition government in regional elections on Sunday.

The dollar was steady against the yen, with USD/JPY changing hands at 111.96.

The pound was lower against the greenback, with GBP/USD off 0.13% at 1.2812 as investors awaited the autumn budget statement from British Chancellor Philip Hammond.

Sterling was flat against the euro, with EUR/GBP at 0.8888.
