FOREX-Dollar index adds gains on concerns over Iran nuclear deal

NEW YORK, May 8 (Reuters) - The dollar extended its earlier gains versus a basket of currencies to a fresh 2018 high on Tuesday as pessimism about the United States remaining in the Iran nuclear deal spurred safe-haven demand for the greenback.

At 9:47 a.m. (1347 GMT), the index that tracks the dollar against the euro, yen, sterling and three other currencies was last up 0.55 percent at 93.259. (Reporting by Richard Leong Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
