The Dow Jones FXCM US Dollar Index is trading slightly lower at the start of the new week, following a disappointing US ISM for services release.

The greenback climbed higher during overnight trading between Sunday and Monday, and the rise was partially due to a decline in Aussie on the disappointing HSBC Chinese PMI for services.

The US Dollar continued to trade in a tight range over the London session, only rising slightly against the Pound on the release of a

worse than expected UK PMI for services.

Finally, the dollar showed some conviction in the NY session. The greenback declined against other Forex majors on the release of a surprise decline in the ISM index for non-manufacturing for December. An improvement in the employment gauge couldn’t stop the greenback losses, which were particularly bad against the Euro and Yen.
