The dollar was mixed on Tuesday as rallying stock markets and positive German economic data gave global investors reasons to throttle down the risk aversion tactics that recently boosted the euro and yen.
The dollar, which traders said was unlikely to move much until Sept. 17, when U.S. Federal Reserve policymakers may announce an interest rate increase, gained against the yen, fell against sterling and had changed little by day's end versus the euro.
U.S. stocks gained more than 2 percent after weak economic data out of China bolstered hopes of more stimulus measures from the Chinese government.
Chinese stocks ended nearly 3 percent higher, and European stocks were up 1.2 percent.
German exports and imports hit record highs in value terms in July, suggesting foreign appetite for goods from Europe's largest economy remained robust despite the slowdown in China, while domestic demand also was holding up well.
