Currencies: Dollar regains ground as haven rally slows

The U.S. dollar continued clawing back ground lost against its main rivals after North Korea launched a ballistic missile over Japan, while the rally in haven assets such as the Swiss franc and the Japanese yen slowed.

The dollar slumped after Pyongyang launched a missile early Tuesday local time that passed over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido and landed in the Pacific Ocean. It was the first missile fired over the main islands of Japan since 2009. The ICE U.S. Dollar index DXY, +0.20% hit its lowest point in more than 2 1/2 years, before retracing its losses.
