Monday, March 20, 2017, 9:17 AM
The South Korean won strengthened for a fourth straight session early on Monday, touching a five-month high as the greenback slipped further following the Federal Reserve’s less hawkish comments last week. The won stood at 1,126.7 as of 0233 GMT, up 0.4 % compared to Friday’s close of 1,130.9. It was the currency’s highest intraday level since Oct. 20.
