    TOKYO, March 10 (Reuters) - The U.S. dollar remained lower
against major rivals on Wednesday after pulling back from
multi-month highs as a retreat in Treasury yields reduced the
currency's appeal.
    Riskier currencies including the Australian and New Zealand
dollars held overnight gains as the pause in the bond market
rout of recent weeks boosted investor sentiment, which also
lifted stocks.
    Bitcoin topped $55,000 for the first time since
Feb. 22 as it narrowed the gap to its record high above $58,000.
    A gauge of the dollar - a traditional haven currency
- against six peers was little changed at around 92.033 after
falling back from a 3-1/2-month high of 92.506 overnight. Less
than two weeks ago, it was trading below 90.
    The U.S. currency has tracked gyrations in Treasury yields,
which have soared on bets that a faster-than-expected economic
rebound would spark a surge in inflation, with President Joe
Biden expected to sign a $1.9 trillion coronavirus aid package
as soon as this week.
    Many analysts still expect the dollar to weaken over the
course of this year though, but the speed of recent gains has
forced some to adjust their views.
    Westpac, which as recently as last week was talking about
selling the dollar index into 91, now sees it reaching as high
as 94.50 before resuming last year's downtrend as the rest of
the world closes the gap with the U.S.'s pandemic recovery.
    "Global reflation is alive and well, and Europe will get her
vaccination act together at some point too," Westpac strategists
wrote in a note Wednesday.
    "A continuation of the global recovery ... should see
commodity currencies outperform."
    The Aussie was mostly flat at $0.7708 after jumping
1% overnight.
    New Zealand's kiwi slipped 0.1% to $0.7165 following
Tuesday's 0.8% increase.
    The euro was 0.1% lower at $1.18880 after bouncing
off Tuesday's 3 1/2-month low of $1.18355.
    Against the yen, another traditional safe haven
currency, the greenback traded 0.1% higher at 108.575 following
its retreat from a nine-month top of 109.235.
    In cryptocurrencies, bitcoin rose as high as
$55,811.40 on Wednesday and was last up 1.3% at $55,661.70.
