The dollar got off to a steady start on Monday as some calm returned to markets following an initial bout of risk aversion stemming from a flare up in geopolitical tensions.

The dollar index was unchanged at 80.513, having retreated from a one-month peak last Friday when the euro bounced off a five-month trough of $1.3491.
