The dollar hit a near two-week low against its peers in opening trades today, with sentiment soured by Federal Reserve caution on the global outlook and weak data at home, pointing to slower rate hikes. The recent remarks by Fed executivesí led some traders to question whether the dollarís rally was nearing its end, with the benchmark U.S. 10 year treasury yields pulling back slightly. The dollar index, a gauge of its value versus six major peers, traded relatively unchanged at 96.22 today. The index fell nearly half a percent last week, its biggest weekly drop since late September. The greenback was also weighed by surprisingly weak housing data, which pushed down U.S. 10 year bond yields. In currency trading, the Japanese yen changed hands at 112.60. It had hit 112.38 earlier in the trading session, its highest level in November. The euro was well bid in early Asian trade at $1.1456. The single currency has gained two percent versus the dollar over the last five trading sessions despite the ongoing standoff between the European Union and Italy over its free-spending budget, which breaks EU fiscal norms, while the sterling gained 0.1 percent to trade at $1.2860. The pound is seen likely to trade sideways until the market gets more clarity on progress in the Brexit deal.  The Indian Rupee opened stronger with a gap of 19 paisa at 71.45/46 against its previous sessionís closing of 71.64/65 and is expected to trade between 71.20- 71.60 ranges today.
