16/07/2019 at 13:45
NEW YORK, July 16 (Reuters) - The dollar held its earlier gains
versus a basket of currencies on Tuesday as data showed U.S. retail
sales grew more than expected in June, soothing concerns about
consumer spending slowing in the third quarter.
At 8:44 a.m. (1244 GMT), an index that tracks the greenback versus
six other currencies was up 0.37% at 97.291 after touching 97.332
earlier, which was its highest in four sessions.
