The dollar fell sharply Monday, hurt by hints of a stronger German economy, fresh doubts about Europe’s single currency plan and news that a big Japanese company was converting all its foreign-exchange holdings to yen.
The retreat pulled the dollar back to its lowest level against the yen since the Group of Seven industrialized powers said Feb. 8 that the U.S. currency’s two-year recovery from postwar lows was complete.
