Against a basket of currencies, the dollar rose less than 0.1%, to 97.249 at 13:53 GMT. Friday saw its...

Gold prices are modestly higher in European trading, extending Friday's gains as real yields on U.S. Treasury bonds keep falling. New York futures are up 0.1% at $1,782.10. Gold's "main supporter is likely U.S. Treasury yields, which continued lower on Friday, powered by fears over U.S. economic growth prospects," says Jeffrey Halley at OANDA. As holding gold pays no interest, investors often prefer Treasury bonds in times of market distress as they generate some yield.
