Euro Erases Earlier Advance Against Dollar, Yen to Trade Little Changed

The euro erased earlier gains versus the dollar and the yen to be little changed.

The 17-nation currency traded at $1.3464 at 6:29 a.m. in New York, after earlier rising as much as 0.8 percent. It was at 102.62 yen.

The single currency earlier rose from a decade low against the yen and strengthened versus the dollar after the Group of 20 nations pledged a “strong and coordinated” response to challenges facing the global economy.

The G-20 nations are “committed to a strong and coordinated international response to address the renewed challenges facing the global economy,” finance chiefs said in a statement released after talks in Washington.
