The dollar hit a four-month high against the Chinese yuan but was lower against the yen and Swiss franc early Monday in Europe as the worsening trade conflict between the U.S. and China prompted bids for ‘safe-haven’ assets.

At 03:00 AM ET (0700 GMT), the dollar was at 109.73 yen, down 0.2% from late Friday, and having dipped as low as 109.60 overnight. That was just a little above the three-month low that the pair hit on Friday as a fresh round of U.S. tariffs on Chinese imports came into force.

The dollar hit a new four-month high against the yuan of 6.8654 overnight.

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump initiated a process to levy 25% tariffs on all remaining untouched Chinese imports, but the two sides continued to negotiate, avoiding an all-out breakdown of the talks. It’s still unclear what form China’s promised retaliation will take.
