Dollar Steady, Yen Slips as Market Selloff Pauses
Thursday, 15 August 2019 15:18 WIB | CURRENCIES |DOLLARCurrency Yen Euro

The dollar was holding steady against a currency basket Thursday and the safe haven yen turned lower as a cautious calm returned to markets which have been roiled by a brutal selloff triggered by fears over the outlook for the global economy.

The U.S. dollar index, which measures its value against a basket of six major currencies, stood at 97.81 by 03:40 AM ET (07:40 GMT) after a 0.2% gain on Wednesday.

The dollar gained ground against the yen, rising 0.1% to 106.19. On Wednesday, the yen rallied 0.8% versus the greenback, its biggest daily gain in two weeks.

Spooked investors fled from stocks and sought safe-haven assets after the U.S. Treasury yield curve inverted Wednesday for the first time in 12 years.

Against the dollar, the Swiss franc eased back to 0.974, after rising 0.% in the previous session. The euro was a touch higher against the greenback at 1.1147.
