dollar resumed its gains against the currencies of oil producers on Tuesday, as investors remained concerned following a historic decline in US crude futures to less than zero and their aversion to risk even after the rise of crude.
The dollar also received support due to concerns about the health of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, after media reports that he was receiving treatment after undergoing cardiovascular medical procedure.
