But the greenback came back to around 104.70 in late afternoon trading when European players began to join market activities, traders said. Other dollar-positive factors Tuesday included a rise in Shanghai stock prices, which have fallen recently on concern about the Chinese economy, according to traders. The dollar also seems to have received support from media reports that the U.S. Federal Reserve will decide to continue scaling back its quantitative monetary policy program at a policy-setting meeting next week, a currency market broker said. The dollar faced downward pressure during its peaks, market sources said.
