NEW YORK: The dollar briefly added to earlier gains versus the euro and yen on Thursday as a stronger-than-expected 3.4 percent rise in domestic pending home sales in April supported the view of a spring revival in the housing market.
The dollar reached a session high against the yen at 124.460 yen on the EBS trading platform before subsiding to 124.195, up 0.4 percent from its U.S. close on Wednesday.
The euro fell to a session low at $ 1.08670. It last traded down 0.05 percent at $ 1.08990.
