The euro briefly tapped the psychologically important $1.30 level on Tuesday after news of a deal to clear the way for Greeceâ€™s next aid payment, while the U.S. dollar largely weakened as investors awaited a clutch of key data.
The euro EURUSD +0.04% changed hands for $1.2973 in early European trading hours, gradually giving up gains seen in Asia and bringing it closer to where it was trading late Monday in North America, at $1.2961.
The brief pop for the euro, which came during Asian trading hours, was triggered by news that Greeceâ€™s creditors reached a long-awaited deal to pave the way for Athens to receive fresh financial aid in the early hours of Brussels on Tuesday.
