The dollar saw almost no movement versus major rivals amid a lack of first-tier U.S. economic news on Monday.
Disappointing economic news out of China overnight gave the safe haven dollar some support, but without a catalyst like last week’s better-than-expected U.S. jobs report, the dollar held near its lowest in more than two years against the euro.
The buck bounced around $1.39 versus the euro, little changed from late Friday.
Modest losses took the dollar to $1.663 versus the sterling, and the dollar/yen pair barely budged at 103.28.
China’s exports unexpectedly tumbled by 18 percent last month, swinging the trade balance into deficit of $22.98 billion, official figures showed.
Separately, consumer price inflation rose 2 percent in February from a year earlier, a 13-month low and down from 2.5 percent in January amid cooling demand.
