TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The dollar held steady against a basket of major currencies on Monday after pulling back slightly from a 3-1/2-month high last week, pressured by a decline in the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury yield.
The dollar’s index against a basket of six major currencies stood at 91.561, steady on the day but down from Friday’s high of 91.986, its strongest level since Jan. 11.
The dollar index had risen more than 1.3 percent last week for its biggest weekly gain in over two months, after the U.S. 10-year Treasury yield rose above the psychologically key 3.0 percent threshold to four-year highs.
