Narrow Trade Gap Boosts Dollar

The dollar rose against the Japanese yen Thursday after Japan said its trade surplus did not widen in June as much as traders had feared.

The dollar also ended higher against the German mark and Swiss franc after a senior Bundesbank official signaled that the central bank isn’t overly concerned about the U.S. currency’s recent ascent to 6-year highs against the mark.

The dollar rose to an intraday high of 116.28 yen on news that Japan’s unadjusted trade surplus grew to 934.21 billion yen in June, well below economists’ expectations.
