USD: dollar strengthens across the board

By Ricky Bean January 9th, 2018

It was a great start to the week for the dollar yesterday as it strengthened across the board. Although the moves against sterling were only slight, the performance against the euro and a basket of other currencies was more significant.

It was actually a rather quiet day for US economic data and today is pretty much the same. On Wednesday we will see the jobless claims and on Friday we will see the inflation rate and retail sales for December. That should give us a fuller indication of how the US economy fared towards the end of 2017.
