NEW YORK (AP) — Uncertainty about the next budget battle in Washington is pushing the dollar higher against other major currencies.
Although Congress approved a budget deal this week, negotiations on the debt ceiling and spending cuts still need to happen.
The dollar is considered a safe haven currency and tends to rise when traders are nervous about the economy.
The euro fell to $1.3109 in afternoon trading from $1.3178 late Wednesday.
The British pound fell to $1.6147 from $1.6251.
The dollar rose to 0.9235 Swiss franc from 0.9185 Swiss franc.
The dollar fell to 87 Japanese yen from 87.14 Japanese yen.
