USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar rose against the major currencies despite macro economic data showing that Pending Home Sales came out 4.3% better than the expected 2.8% and concerns about recovery still remain. The Stock Markets in the U.S. closed negative with the Dow Jones losing 0.72% and the NASDAQ falling by 1.11%. Crude Oil jumped above $82.30, but dragged back and closed almost unchanged at $81.40 a barrel. Gold (XAU) touched another record high at $1320, but closed with a small loss at $1315 an ounce. Today, The ISM Non-Manufacturing Index is expected at 51.8 vs. 51.5 previously.

EURO (EUR) – The Euro declined versus the Dollar in Forex trading, as overbought conditions and profit taking led the market. Also, the PPI came out at 0.1%, worse than the expected 0.2%, which added to the Euro's weakness. Trading below the 1.3720 resistance level might extend the decline in the pair. Overall, EUR/USD traded with low of 1.3643 and with a high of 1.3802. Today, Retail Sales are expected at 0.2% vs. 0.1% previously.
