Forex Commentary:

The dollar dropped broadly on Tuesday and investors expected it to continue to depreciate as long as U.S. lawmakers fail to reach a compromise on a budget plan to prevent the country from defaulting on its debt.

The dollar hit a record low against the Swiss franc, a traditional safe haven, falling below a key option barrier at 0.80 franc. It also dropped to a four-month trough versus the yen and a three week low versus the euro.

The euro hit a session high of $1.4525, its strongest July 5. It was last at $1.4518, up 1 percent.

Other Markets:
