The dollar rose against the euro Tuesday after U.S. consumer confidence fell slightly in March.
The Conference Board said that its Consumer Confidence Index slipped to 70.2 in March from 71.6 in February.
The euro fell to $1.3336 in late trading Tuesday from $1.3343 late Monday.
The dollar fell against the euro Monday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said that the U.S. job market is still weak despite recent positive signs.
Traders interpreted Bernanke's comments to mean that the Fed will keep interest rates near zero. Lower interest rates tend to weigh on a currency by reducing the returns investors get from holding it.
In other trading Tuesday, the British pound rose to $1.5963 from $1.5953.
The dollar rose to 83.09 Japanese yen from 82.82 yen, to 0.9040 Swiss franc from 0.9038 Swiss franc and to 99.44 Canadian cents from 99.24 Canadian cents.
