The dollar fell to session lows on Wednesday after President Donald Trump told the Wall Street Journal he thinks the currency is getting "too strong."
The greenback last traded about 0.4 percent lower against a basket of currencies, with the euro rising to trade at $1.064. The yen also hit a session high against the dollar, last trading around 109.3.
The yen also reached its highest against the euro since mid-November and against sterling since January.
The flight to safety underpinned traditional safe havens like the yen, U.S. Treasuries and gold amid new concerns about France's presidential election and the United States' relations with Syria and North Korea.
