The U.S. Dollar Index that measures the greenback against other major currencies tallied a 0.07% crash to 92.862. The index placed slightly below last week’s three-and-a-half-month high of 93.194 but was up about 3.8% from its recent low on May 25.

The USD/JPY pair shed 0.18% to 110.34, close to last Friday’s highest record since July 14 of 110.58.

The AUD/USD pair slid 0.20% to 0.7349, while the NZD/USD pair was also down 0.01% to 0.6970.

The greenback last traded at $1.17655 per euro near the previous week’s high of $1.1752. It is expected to perform well throughout the week following anticipations of the Fed’s asset tapering.
