Major currencies steady in early trade after G20

SYDNEY (Reuters) - The dollar index was steady at 100.31 in quiet early trade on Monday after a meeting of the financial leaders of the world’s biggest economies in Germany over the weekend.

Other major currencies such as the yen, the euro and pound sterling were also little changed. The Australian dollar held at $0.7687, down 0.16 percent.

G20 finance ministers and central bankers dropped a pledge to keep global trade free and open, acquiescing to an increasingly protectionist United States after a two-day meeting failed to yield a compromise.
