The dollar index was marginally lower at 91.523, not far from last week’s low of 91.484, a level not seen since March 18. USD/JPY was down 0.2% at 108.53, while AUD/USD rose 0.1% to 0.7741. The 10-year Treasury yield last traded at 1.55%, a sharp fall from the high of just short of 1.78% seen at the end of last month, reducing the appeal of dollar-denominated assets as an investment.
