The U.S. dollar ticked higher against a currency basket on Tuesday, as market sentiment remained subdued amid persistent uncertainties over trade and the outlook for global economic growth.
By 03:31 ET (07:31 GMT) the dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six major rivals, was 0.2% higher at 97.672, trading about 0.6% off a two-year high of 98.371 hit on Thursday. The index is still up 1.7% for the year.
Many of the currency pairs remained in recent ranges, with trade volumes still thin after market holidays in the U.S. and the U.K. on Monday.
Trade concerns remained to the forefront of investors™ minds. U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that Washington was not ready to make a deal with Beijing but he expected one in the future, while at the same time pressing Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to even out a trade imbalance with the United States.
The dollar edged lower against the yen, with USD/JPY last at 109.4.
The euro was lower, with EUR/USD down 0.1% to 1.1180 after bouncing from a one-and-half week high of 1.1215 overnight following the outcome of European parliamentary elections.
