US Dollar Mixed on Better-Than-Expected Industrial, Manufacturing Output

The US dollar is mixed against several major currency rivals on Tuesday after the latest industrial and manufacturing output numbers were published. But global financial markets are bracing for the Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates, which the market is now split on. In the backdrop is low-level US-China trade discussions restarting later this week.

US Dollar Mixed Ahead of Fed Decision

Risk Appetite Makes US Dollar End Week Among Losers

The US dollar ended the past trading week among the weakest currencies on the Forex market, along with the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc, due to risk appetite among traders. Negative domestic employment data also hurt the greenback. Commodity currencies were the strongest.

US Dollar Soft Under Pressure from Various Negative Fundamentals

The US dollar gained against its Australian and Canadian counterparts but otherwise was rather soft today. There were plenty of reasons for the dollar’s weakness: the outlook for interest rate cuts, escalation of the US-China trade war, and poor US housing data.

US Dollar Strengthens on Trade Concessions, Higher Inflation

The US dollar is strengthening on Tuesday, buoyed by the White House delaying tariffs on Chinese imports until December and higher consumer prices in July. The greenback was capped on greater expectations over the central bank cutting interest rates again next month.

US Dollar Mixed on PPI, Index Slips Below 97

The US dollar is mixed against most currencies at the end of the trading week, driven by the latest inflation numbers.

US Dollar Surges on Strong June Jobs Report

The US dollar is surging at the end of the holiday-shortened trading week, buoyed by a stellar June jobs report that defied market expectations and showcased employment gains in nearly every sector of the economy. But equities kicked off the trading session in the red because job creation dampened hopes of a cut to interest rates by the US central bank.

US Dollar Ends Week Flat vs. Majors, Lower vs. Commodity Currencies

The main theme this week was the Group of Twenty summit, or more specifically the meeting of the US and China leaders on the sidelines of the summit. The US dollar ended the week either flat or a little higher versus other majors as traders were reluctant to risk ahead of a major event. Yet it seems they were optimistic enough for riskier commodity currencies to become clear winners this week despite the threat of interest rate cuts from […]

US Dollar Weakens on Poor Data, Unexpected June Rate Cut

The US dollar is weakening against its currency peers to start the trading week. Driven by disappointing economic data and a central bank unlikely to cut interest rates at its policy meeting this week, the greenback is taking a hit as investors take a wait-and-see approach.

US Dollar Mixed on Lower Jobless Benefits, Fed Uncertainty

The US dollar is trading mixed against some of its major currency rivals on Thursday as an influx of data is weighing on the greenback.
