The S&P 500 and Dow hit records Monday as tech and reopening stocks surged on a wave of economic optimism after data showed the underlying strength in the recovery continues to gather pace.
The dollar stabilized near an almost two-week low versus a basket of its peers on Tuesday, moving in tandem with a retreat in Treasury yields from recent peaks despite signs of a robust U.S. economic recovery. The yen continued to recover from a more than one-year low near 111 per dollar, briefly strengthening back below 110 on Tuesday.
