U.S. Dollar Remains Steady near 11 Year High

The U.S. dollar hovered just below a fresh 11-year peak against a basket of major currencies early on Tuesday, as rising Treasury yields helped it prevail against the euro in a choppy session.

The dollar index climbed as far as 95.514, surpassing the previous peak of 95.481 set on Jan. 23. It reached a high not seen since September 2003.

The index rose as the euro slid back below $1.1200 and as the greenback hit a near three-week high of 120.19 yen. The euro zone common currency last stood at $1.1186.
