LONDON, June 6 The dollar slipped to a one-month
low against a broadly stronger yen on Monday, with the U.S.
currency staying under selling pressure after weak U.S. payrolls
last week highlighted struggles in the U.S. economy.
The dollar slipped to 79.97 yen JPY= according to
electronic trading platform EBS, its weakest since May 5 and
briefly dipping below the psychologically key 80 yen level.
Some traders cited custodial flows to buy the yen across the
board, which helped to prod the U.S. currency lower, while
momentum funds were seen selling currencies against the yen.
The euro EURJPY=R fell 0.5 percent on the day to 116.87
