Highlights
May 8, 2017
The dollar got a lift from profit-taking in the euro which briefly broke over $1.1000 following the victory in France of centrist Emmmanual Macron before settling back to $1.0930. The dollar index rose 0.4 percent to 99.11 to highlight what was otherwise a narrow session for the financial markets. The Dow posted a fractional gain to 21,012 while safe-haven demand eased out of the Treasury market where the 10-year yield rose 4 basis points to 2.39 percent.
