Dollar stays firm on improved sentiment, rise in U.S. Treasury yields
Tuesday, 5 February 2019 09:42 WIB | CURRENCIES |Dolar Indeks Dolar Yen Euro

The dollar held on to recent gains against its peers on Tuesday, supported by a recovery in investor risk appetite, which helped push up U.S. yields during the previous session.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was barely changed at 95.828 after gaining for three straight sessions.

Trading was likely to remain subdued in Asia with many markets across the region closed for Lunar New Year holidays for much of the week.

The index rose 0.7 percent after dipping last week below its 200-day moving average for the first time since early January 2018.

It gained as Treasury yields rose with that of the 10-year jumping 9 basis points over the past two sessions.

Against the Japanese yen, the dollar gained a tad to 109.98 yen. It had briefly risen above 110 yen for the first time since Dec. 31 overnight.

The euro was flat at $1.1437, off three-week high of $1.15145 set on Thursday.

The Australian dollar slipped 0.4 percent to $0.7199 as retail sales for December came in weaker than expected, and ahead of a policy decision by the Reserve Bank of Australia later in the day.

Sterling was basically flat at $1.3038 after seesawing during the previous session on uncertainty over the way Britain will leave the European Union.
