March 31, 2020
The Dollar index headed lower in N.Y. on Tuesday, touching 98.99, down from opening highs of 99.93. Month and quarter end related USD selling was reported through the morning session.

Wall Street dipped lower on profit taking, while Treasury yields moved lower. EUR-USD ranged between 1.0927 and 1.1027, settling near its highs, while USD-JPY fell from over 108.70 to lows under 107.50.

The commodity currencies have traded softer, suggesting there is little buy-in to a sustained improvement in global market sentiment, despite gains in stock markets. AUD-USD punched out a four-day low at 0.6079, extending the correction from Friday's two-week high at 0.6202.
