The Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index was trading nearly unchanged from the daily open at mid-day on Tuesday, despite setting a new 2-week low following the release of disappointing US Durable Goods Orders for December.

The dollar rallied 70 pips against the Pound on the announcement of an as-expected UK GDP release for the fourth quarter. Apparently traders may have expected an even better performance than the projected 0.7% quarterly economic growth, and the Pound showed weakness in the hour following the release.

However, cable losses proved to be temporary, and the dollar index fell back towards 10,670 ahead of the start of the NY session. Then, a surprise decline in US durable goods orders sent the greenback to a new 2-week low. Those losses were also unwound, as traders may have instead reverted back to trading in anticipation the upcoming FOMC meeting. A better than expected consumer confidence release for January helped the dollar pare the goods orders losses.
