The dollar moved in a tight range in Asian trade Tuesday ahead of a monetary policy announcement by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) scheduled later in the day.
In Tokyo trade, the dollar fetched 103.28 yen, almost unchanged from 103.26 yen in New York Monday afternoon.
The euro fell to 143.23 yen from 143.28 yen, while it also eased slightly to $1.3869 from $1.3875.
Junichi Ishikawa, market analyst at IG Securities in Tokyo, said the central bank would likely stand pat on policy, despite some expectations of additional easing by foreign investors.
