U.S. Dollar Holds Near Two Week High

The dollar held at two-week highs against a basket of major currencies early on Tuesday after a subdued session overnight, with many global financial centers shut for the Easter long-weekend holiday.

Traders expect a slow start with no major economic data out of Asia, although Australian inflation numbers, a survey on China’s manufacturing sector and an interest rate review in New Zealand over the next two days should provide some interest.

The dollar index was last at 79.963, having gained nearly 0.2 percent on Monday. Against the yen, the greenback was at 102.63, not far from a two-week high of 102.71.
