The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index rebounded from yesterday’s four day low in today’s trading, despite the upcoming holidays applying the brakes to Forex volatility.

The biggest gains in the greenback index corresponded to the rise in USD/JPY during the Tokyo session. The Yen declined as the Nikkei equities index hit a new 6-year high. USD/JPY trading has reflected Nikkei gains recently, and Japanese news will continue to be released over the Christmas break.

The dollar index continued to trade slightly below 10,700 through the rest of the overnight and European sessions. A better than expected US durable goods orders release gave the greenback a slight boost, and the index slowly re-tested the daily high before the markets closed for the Christmas break.
