Greenback stands still, capped by diving long-term American yields

On Wednesday, the evergreen buck didn’t change against its peers, being capped because US Treasury yields didn’t manage to ascend notwithstanding soaring investor risk appetite in broader financial markets.

Against a basket of six crucial currencies the US dollar index was intact, keeping to 93.941.

Evidently, the US dollar index rebounded from a one-week maximum of 94.165 overnight after a leap triggered earlier this week by a dropping euro stalled because long-term US Treasury yields kept going down.

The US currency was a bit lower at 112.280 yen, having dropped overnight from a peak of 112.705.

On Tuesday, Wall Street equities edged up to record maximums, while Japan's Nikkei N225 ascended back towards 26-year highs.

Meanwhile, the euro dived against its peers in the beginning of the trading week because German Chancellor Angela Merkel's inability to form a three-way "Jamaica coalition" government heavily affected the country's political outlook.
