The dollar rose to a new 10-month peak on Tuesday as US bond yields surged to their highest level since October 2007, while the Japanese yen resumed its slide.

The yen is sliding towards the 150 level that analysts and traders are on alert for potential intervention from officials, whose warnings have stepped up in recent weeks.


Elsewhere, the British pound slid to its lowest level since mid-March at $1.2168. It follows the BoE's decision to hold rates at 5.25% last week and a bout of downbeat economic data.
