US dollar index sticks to 13-month low
On Monday, the evergreen buck struggled near a 13-month minimum versus a basket of key counterparts because American political turmoil dampened expectations for quick passage of Donald Trump's stimulus as well as tax reform agendas and the common currency extended revenues.
On Friday, the Trump administration, currently dogged by investigations into hypothetical Russian meddling in the American election, took a fresh hit after White House spokesman Sean Spicer shelved himself. That’s a hint at a sort of upheaval in the president's inner circle.

The evergreen buck slumped 0.15% reaching 110.970 yen, with the yen at its strongest value in five weeks.
