Dollar index falls to two-month low
LONDON Dec 18 (Reuters) - The dollar index fell to a two-month low on Tuesday, with the U.S. currency dipping against the euro after signs of progress in negotiations over the so-called U.S. fiscal cliff helped lift market sentiment.
The dollar index fell to 79.464, its lowest level since Oct. 19. Market players reported supranational demand for the euro that contributed to the safe-haven dollar's weakness.
