NEW YORK: The dollar rose from a one-month low against the euro and a 2-1/2-month trough versus the yen on Tuesday in thin trading, after a key US manufacturing gauge showed factory activity unexpectedly picked up last month, offsetting recent weak economic reports. The Institute for Supply Management's factory data was one of the rare instances of positive US economic news in recent weeks. Traders used the stronger-than-expected ISM manufacturing report to rebuild long dollar bets that had grown stale as the economy's outlook weakened. "The view on the economy has swung from optimism to pessimism of late and this could bring us back to the middle," said Nick Bennenbroek, head of FX strategy for North America at Wells Fargo in New York.

Trading volumes dropped off on ...
TORONTO: Canada's dollar hit a seven-month high against its US counterpart on Friday and was on track for its best month this year after the greenback slid broadly on signs of flagging US growth. First-quarter US economic growth cooled as businesses cut back on investment and restocked shelves at a slower pace.

LIMA: Peru's central bank bought $158 million on the local spot market on Thursday, but the sol still closed at its strongest level since October 1997. The sol bid 0.19 percent stronger at 2.642 per dollar.

TORONTO: Canada's dollar slipped against its US counterpart on Thursday, snapping four sessions of gains and staying in a tight range for most of the day on disappointing US jobless claims data.

"Some people are seeing the initial jobless claims this morning ...
