Yen push on Dollar

The dollar dipped against the yen early on Tuesday, while the New Zealand dollar rose after the nation's central bank chief said he did not see the need for a rapid succession of interest rate cuts.

The dollar shed 0.2 percent to 100.120 against the safe-haven yen amid a pullback in Tokyo stocks.

The greenback had risen to almost 101.00 yen overnight following hawkish-sounding comments by Federal Reserve Vice Chair Stanley Fischer before it lost steam.
