South Korea's foreign reserves jumped to a record high in July, the central bank said on August 5, 2013, appearing to support traders' suspicions of dollar-buying intervention by currency authorities last month. The reserves stood at $329.71 billion at the end of July, up $3.27 billion from June, the Bank of Korea said in a statement, attributing the rise to management gains and the appreciation of the euro in July, which the Bank of Korea said was up 1.8 percent against the dollar last month.

New York: The US dollar slipped against most major currencies on Monday as recent downbeat economic data from the country dented market expectation for an interest-rate hike soon.
In late New York trading, the euro rose to $1.1185 from $1.1171 in the previous session, while the dollar bought 101.23 Japanese yen, higher than 101.14 yen in the previous session, Xinhua news agency reported.
