The dollar was all but flatlining in Asia on Tuesday as investors awaited readings on Chinese manufacturing and the European economy to gauge the pulse of the global economy.
China's official purchasing management index (PMI) is forecast to hold at 50.5 in April after bouncing in March in what analysts hoped was evidence that policy stimulus was gaining traction in the economy.
For now, the euro was steady at $1.1184, having edged away from a near two-year trough of $1.1110 hit last week.
The dollar was stuck at 111.67 yen, having traded a very tight range with Japan on holiday. Resistance is lined up at the recent top of 112.39, with support at 111.37 and 110.83.
Against a basket of currencies, the dollar was a fraction softer at 97.856, having eased from last week's near two-year peak of 98.330.
