The dollar edged up in quiet trading early today a day after a sharp setback that dealers attributed to technical factors. Gold prices were little changed. Dealers said that lacking any important news on interest rates or the health of the U.S. economy, the markets were likely to keep the currency within a narrow range. In Tokyo, where trading ends before Europe's business day begins, the dollar fell to a closing 252.75 yen from Tuesday's 254.15. Later, in London, it was quoted at 253.05 yen.

Any time highflying stocks slide almost 10% in just three days, it's natural to wonder whether sellers are flooding out of the woodwork to dump shares. But amid the Nasdaq composite index's fast 9.2% decline this week, investors should instead be asking where all the buyers went.

The dollar retreated amid widespread profit-taking early today after seven straight days of record-breaking gains. Gold was a shade higher.

Dealers said investors seemed worried about the prospect of further central bank intervention.

The dollar edged lower against major European currencies early today as investors pondered the prospect of further central bank intervention. Gold prices gained.

The U.S. dollar stabilized in early trading today, a day after its biggest one-day slide in more than 12 years. Gold prices gained. By the time markets opened in Europe, the dollar had steadied. It was trading at higher levels than the depths it reached in U.S. trading but was mixed in comparison with Monday's earlier European close. Still, the West German Bundesbank sold $46.6 million at the daily fixing. There was no intervention, however, on the open market.
