Dollar index rises to 1-month high
LONDON Feb 11 (Reuters) - The dollar index rose to a 1-month high on Monday on the U.S. currency's recent gains against the euro and the yen.
The index which measures the dollar's performance against a basket of currencies rose to 80.298, its highest since Jan. 10.
The euro was hovering near a 2-week low against the dollar as last weeks comments from European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi about the euro's strength weighed along with fresh worries about a rescue for Cyprus.
The yen has been under pressure on increased prospects of further monetary easing in Japan.
