USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar weakened across the board in Forex Trading, after a report showed slower growth in the U.S. The ISM Non - Manufacturing Index came out at 53.8, worse than the expected 55. Stock Markets in the U.S jumped more than 2% as investors came back to trade after the holiday, but hardly managed to hold gains with Dow Jones increasing by only 0.59% and the NASDAQ rising by a mere 0.1%. Crude Oil almost reached the 74$ but failed to hold and fell back to 72$ a barrel. Gold (XAU) fell below the 1200$ and closed at 1193$ an ounce. No economic data is expected today.

Euro (EUR) – The Euro advanced versus the Dollar to a 6 week high as reports in the US showed slower economic growth than expected. Breaching the 1.2670 level might extend the positive momentum in the pair. Overall, EUR/USD traded with a low of 1.2479 and with a high of 1.2660. Today, the GDP is expected to remain unchanged at 0.2%. German Factory Orders are expected at 0.5% vs. 2.8% previously.
