The 16-nation euro bought $1.4134 in European morning trade, up from the $1.4085 late Monday in New York.

The British pound also rose slightly to $1.6411 from $1.6340, while the dollar rose against the Japanese yen to 95.02 yen from 94.49 the night before.

“The forex markets remain focussed on risk aversion,” Calyon Credit Agricole analysts wrote in a research note.

“This recent bout of uncertainty, however, does not seem to rest on fears that the world is going to fall back into a deep recession, but simply that the pace of recovery will not be as rapid as some had hoped for.”
