Want to trade with proprietary strategies developed by FXCM? Find out how here.

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.
