TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The dollar rose to its highest level against a basket of major currencies in nearly three weeks on Tuesday after U.S. retail sales data showed the largest gain in seven months.

Gains were also supported by news that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had delayed a decision on firing missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. That was taken by markets as another sign the threats were rhetorical.

The dollar rose by more than 1 percent against the Japanese yen, touching its highest in more than a week and on pace for its largest daily rise against the yen since July 3. The euro fell to its lowest against the dollar since July 28.
