NEW YORK (AP) -- The dollar is mixed against other major currencies following weak British economic data and the possibility for new stimulus in Japan.
The euro is up a fraction against the dollar, trading at $1.304, from $1.3038 late Monday.
The British pound is recovering some of its earlier drop. It is down to $1.4860, after earlier falling as far as $1.4830, its lowest level since June 2010. The decline followed the release of weak British industrial production figures. Late Monday, the pound was worth $1.4929.
The dollar fell to 95.98 Japanese yen from 96.27 yen late Monday. The yen fell earlier as expectations increased that the Bank of Japan will soon announce a big stimulus program to get the Japanese economy going again.
