The dollar index this morning is down -0.05 (-0.05%). EUR/USD is up +0.0017 (+0.14%) and USD/JPY is down -0.19 (-0.17%). Tuesday's closes: Dollar Index +0.007 (+0.01%), EUR/USD +0.0014 (+0.12%), USD/JPY +0.78 (+0.71%). The dollar index on Tuesday closed slightly higher after the S&P 500 posted a new record high, which reduced safe-haven demand for the yen and sent USD/JPY to a 1-week high, and on an increase in the 10-year T-note yield to a 2-week high, which improves the dollar's interest rate differentials.
