Taipei, Jan. 19 (CNA) The U.S. dollar ended unchanged against the Taiwan dollar at NT$30.842 Saturday.

Turnover totaled US$74 million during the trading session.

The greenback opened at the day's high of NT$30.850, and moved to a low of NT$30.830 before rebounding.

Taiwan was the only foreign exchange market to open Saturday to make up a lost trading session for the upcoming nine-day Lunar New Year holiday, which will start on Feb. 2.

Due to reduced participation by foreign currency traders, turnover in the session was thin and even fell below the US$100 million mark, analysts said.
