Greenback revives from drops vs key counterparts as North Korea fears relieve
On Wednesday, the major American currency drifted away from the previous session's 4-1/2 month drops versus the Japanese yen because traders’ worries over North Korea's latest missile launch relieved for now. Meanwhile, the Australian dollar edged up on positive construction data.
Tracking the greenback's value versus a basket of six major currencies, the dollar index gained 0.1% hitting 92.292, having revived from Tuesday's minimum of 91.621, which is its lowest value since January 2015.
The evergreen buck last reached 109.77 yen, soaring from Tuesday's minimum of 108.265 yen, which is its lowest value since mid-April.
North Korea's launch of another ballistic missile on Tuesday over Japan's northern territory naturally worried market participants. The launch generated a dip in American bond yields as well as a drop in the evergreen buck versus the Japanese yen that tends to derive benefits during times of uncertainly and downtime on the assumption that Japanese traders are going to repatriate funds.
