USD: dollar makes a better start to the week

By Callum Holmes January 10th, 2018

It was another decent day at the office for the dollar as it strengthened further against the euro and sterling. After a bit of a mixed start to the year it appears to be performing slightly better, although in truth the movements – especially against the pound – have been within an extremely tight range.

Today we will see the release of the import and export data for December, as well as mortgage applications up to 5 January 2018. However, tomorrow is more of a focal point, with the jobless claims data set for release.

The week ends on a busy note with retail sales and inflation rate data scheduled.
