Week of Gains for USD After Non-Farm Payrolls

The US dollar gained ground this week, following last week’s losses, with help of domestic macroeconomic indicators, most important of which were non-farm payrolls. At the same time, the performance of the greenback was not as stellar as one might expect considering the circumstances.

Economic Data Helps Pound Against Euro

The pound may be retreating a bit against some of its counterparts, but sterling is seeing solid support against the euro today. Thanks to the latest round of economic data, pound is gaining against the euro, even though it is down against currencies like the yen and the dollar.

Dollar Heads Higher with Jobs Boom in June

US dollar is heading higher today, gaining ground, thanks to a jobs boom for the month of June.

The good news is pushing the dollar higher on expectations that the Federal Reserve will soon have to end easing sooner rather than later.

Outlook for USD During Week of NFP & Independence Day

Euro Continues to See Modest Gains

Greenback Gains Ground Against Euro After Jobless Claims

US dollar is up against the euro today, gaining ground after the jobless claims report. While the report missed expectations by a little bit, the general trend is still toward economic recovery, and the rising dollar index reflects that today.

Taiwan Dollar Profits from US Economic Woes

The Taiwan dollar rose today, joining the rally of other riskier currencies, amid speculations that signs of faltering economic recovery in the United States will force the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates low for a longer period of time than was previously thought.
