Currencies: Dollar slips as investors gear up for Fed speakers

The U.S. dollar slid lower against most major rivals Tuesday amid rising tensions with North Korea, as well as a packed schedule of Federal Reserve speakers greeting investors coming back to trade after the Labor Day holiday.

The ICE U.S. Dollar Index DXY, -0.35% a gauge of the greenback’s performance against six rivals, fell 0.4% to 92.261. The WSJ Dollar Index BUXX, -0.45% which measures it against a larger basket of currencies, moved lower by 0.5% to 85.25.

The buck added on from the losses it registered against haven currencies like the Japanese yen USDJPY, -0.92% and the Swiss franc USDCHF, -0.2817% on Monday, following North Korea’s latest nuclear test, deepening them on Tuesday.
