  • The greenback rallies in the NY session, then quickly erases the gains

The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index is trading higher in Tuesday’s session following rallies in the Tokyo and New York session.

The US Dollar jumped against the Aussie following a better than expected Australian trade balance. The exports amount remained unchanged in November, and the 1% decline in imports may have warned traders of a drop in demand in Australia, therefore sending the Aussie lower.

An expected decline in Euro-zone inflation failed to budge the Euro and couldn’t stop an ensuing fall in the US Dollar index over the first half of the London session. Then, the greenback rallied to just short of a 2-week high set last week at 10,725, before soon erasing all of the NY session gains.
