Currencies: Dollar mostly gains, but falls vs. yen on haven demand

The dollar climbed against most of its rivals early Wednesday, but lost ground vs. the yen as geopolitical worries spurred buying in Japan’s haven currency.

Softer-than-expected economic reports from the eurozone and U.K. were helping to send traders toward the buck.
