The dollar hovered near a seven-week low against a basket of major currencies on Thursday, its safe-haven appeal lessened by fading fears about a trade row between China and the United States.

After a knee-jerk reaction to new tariffs announced by Washington and Beijing on Tuesday, currency markets are settling down and expecting the fallout will take some time to show up in corporate earnings and not produce a sharp global shock.
