Greenback, euro gain
(03-04 13:31)

The US dollar gained in Asia Tuesday, supported by a pickup in US manufacturing activity, but fears about the escalating crisis in Ukraine hung over currency markets.
In afternoon trade the greenback fetched 101.67 yen, up from 101.44 yen on Monday in New York where it touched a one-month low of 101.20 yen as investors flocked to the safety of the Japanese unit.
The euro strengthened to 139.63 yen from 139.34 yen, while buying US$1.3732 against US$1.3737.—AFP
