USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar traded mixed with the majors currencies today. The GDP came out as expected at 2.00% and the Chicago PMI came out at 60.60, better than the expected 57.50. The Stock Markets in the U.S. closed mixed with the Dow Jones rising 0.04% and the NASDAQ unchanged. Crude Oil fell against the dollar and closed below $82 a barrel. Gold (XAU) advanced by $19.87 and closed at $1362 an ounce as investors chose to turn back to a safe haven, gold. Today, the price index is expected unchanged at 0.10% and the ISM Manufacturing Index is expected at 53.60 vs. 54.40 previously.

Euro (EUR) – The dollar fell for a third day against the euro in Forex trading on speculation that the Federal Reserve will take more credit-easing measures amid signs of a stagnant recovery in the world’s largest economy.
