The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index looks ready to end its 4 consecutive days of gains, as the greenback declined on better than expected Chinese economic growth.
The US Dollar opened with a slight gap higher on Sunday evening despite a relatively quiet weekend. However, in overnight trading between Sunday and Monday, the greenback posted losses against the Aussie on a better than expected release of Chinese GDP for the fourth quarter. 2013 Chinese economic growth remained unchanged from 2012 at 7.7%.
The dollar continued to decline through the rest of the Tokyo session as well as the first half of the London session, despite a lack of significant news.
