The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index climbed higher in the first day of trading this week, as mixed manufacturing data only helped the greenback rally.
After an initial decline in the Tokyo session, the US Dollar rose to a new 3-day high over the London hours. Euro-zone PMI for manufacturing was reported better than expected, but the Euro still saw a decline at the time, possibly as a reaction to disappointing PMI’s from Spain and Ireland.
In the NY session, US ISM Manufacturing significantly beat expectations for the November release. The greenback just met a 4-day high on the hike in trading after the ISM release.
