The dollar continued near a three-week high on Tuesday as market volatility eased, boosting demand for riskier assets.
Demand for US-denominated assets grew as 10-year Treasury yields rose more than 20 basis points over the past four weeks to a one-month high.
Price movements were generally calm with the reopening of financial markets after the Easter holiday.
The dollar index, which measures the strength of the US currency against six major rivals, rose to 97.39, approaching the peak of 2019 of 97.71 recorded in early March.
"We are in a very narrow market and the broader picture is more positive for the dollar compared to the euro after the data of the euro zone industrial manufacturing PMI, which was weak last week," said Orlich Lochmann, director of exchange strategy at Commerzbank.
Data released overnight showed US home sales fell more-than-expected in March. New home sales figures are due later on Tuesday, and may give an indication of the state of the US economy.
The dollar moved little against the euro and the pound, with the single currency falling to $ 1.1243 and the pound rising to $ 1.2986.
