The dollar rallied to a two-day high in narrow trade-weighted terms, with the DXY index pegging a high at 96.32, extending the rebound from yesterday's five-week low at 95.78.

The Dollar was under some pressure early in the session on Wednesday, taking the DXY to one-month lows of 95.78. The USD's weakness was again attributed to the risk-on backdrop, which saw stocks and yields head higher, prompting the unwinding of safe-haven long USD positions. Read more

The Dollar was slightly lower overall on Tuesday in N.Y., though trading ranges were generally narrow. A warmer than expected June CPI print had little impact on markets. Wall Street was choppy, though ultimately found a footing in positive territory on some better than expected earnings from JP Morgan and Citigroup, while Treasury yields were slightly lower.
