The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar index was extremely quiet between the close of the NY session yesterday and the NY open today. There were no majorly significant releases and no market moving speakers over the Asian and European sessions.
However, the market woke up quickly for the disappointing US Non-farm payrolls and unemployment release. The US Dollar declined to a seven month low on the disappointing rise in payrolls, especially against risk correlated currencies, which the disappointing unemployment number supported because the Fed may need to postpone the taper until employment further improves.
