    TOKYO, Jan 8 (Reuters) - The dollar held on to its biggest
gain in more than two months against major peers on Friday as a
rise in U.S. yields triggered some unwinding of bearish bets on
the currency.
    The greenback bounced off a nearly three-year low, with
traders taking profits against the euro in particular, following
a slide in the dollar index of nearly 7% in 2020 and as much as
0.9% in the new year amid expectations of U.S. fiscal stimulus.
    Democrats won effective control of the Senate this week,
giving President-elect Joe Biden scope to push through more
spending, which analysts say will be negative for bonds and the
    The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield topped 1% on Wednesday
for the first time since March.
    Dollar "positioning is stretched and the backup in U.S.
yields has some investors nervous," TD Securities analysts wrote
in a client note.
    "The (dollar's) move, however, is more consolidative in tone
than it is a sign of a bigger correction."
    Investors now await U.S. nonfarm payrolls later on Friday
for clues on whether significantly more stimulus will be needed
to keep the economic recovery alive.
    The dollar index was little changed at 89.841 in
early Asian trading, after dipping to an almost three-year low
of 89.206 on Wednesday. It rose more than half a percent on
Thursday, but remains on track for a weekly decline.
    The euro was mostly flat at $1.22685 following
Thursday's 0.5% drop.
    The riskier Aussie dollar was also little changed at
77.695 U.S. cents after sliding 0.5% in the previous session.
    The greenback bought 103.820 yen after gaining
0.7% to close at 103.830 in New York.
    Bitcoin traded 0.2% lower at $39,418 after
smashing through $40,000 for the first time on Thursday and
soaring as high as $40,420. The digital currency crossed the
$20,000 milestone less than a month ago, on Dec. 16, and has
rallied more than 700% since March.
