NEW YORK (Reuters) - The dollar added to its earlier gains versus a basket of currencies on Monday on data suggesting the U.S. manufacturing sector grew by more than expected in September, returning into expansion territory.
The dollar index <.DXY> was up 0.25 percent at 95.694 after the Institute for Supply Management said its U.S. factory activity index increased to 51.5 last month from 49.4 in August.
