Dollar Hits 10-Month Low Vs. Pound

Tue., Nov. 11, 1997, midnight

The dollar Monday dropped to a 10-month low against the British pound and a 5-1.2-month low vs. the Swiss franc, but inched to a second straight six-month high against the Japanese yen as traders turned to safer currencies amid Asia’s economic turmoil.

The dollar finished essentially flat against the German mark as both currencies rose against the yen, but neither posted a significant gain.
