By (kenan.machado@wsj.com)

2137 ET – The dollar has stabilized in Asian trading, but the Korean won is falling after hitting fresh 1-year highs Wednesday. After fall 1% versus the won the prior 2 days, the greenback is up 0.3% this morning. Chalk it up to bargain-hunting while Thanksgiving arrives in the US, says Oanda’s Stephen Innes.
