Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN) – The US Dollar (USD) rose to a two- month high against the Japanese Yen (JPY), trading at around 92.08 Yen, according to reports.

U.S. stocks declined on Tuesday, as data showing a rise in consumer confidence was offset by a downbeat housing market report. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dipped 1.67 points, to end at 10,545.41, while the NASDAQ Composite Index declined 2.68 points, to close at 2,288.40.
