Currency Note US Dollar

US dollar steady

By Ricky Bean June 10th, 2014

The US dollar had a quiet and mixed start to the week, trading within a narrow range as data worldwide was thin on the ground. The US currency finished slightly up against the euro, but the opposite versus sterling.

Today follows much in the same fashion, with little significant data to impact the markets. There is some data of mild interest from stateside later this afternoon, with job openings figure due. This will be the only thing for investors to go on, ahead of the more important labour data in the form of unemployment claims, due later this week. As such, markets may be a little more tentative, as they await more significant indicators.
