USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar traded mixed against the major currencies in Forex trading. The market will be unpredictable this week and we will see big movements at times, in very short periods, because we are still waiting for the FED meeting, the interest rate this decision, and the nonfarm pay rolls on Friday. The ISM Manufacturing Index came out at 56.90, better than the expected 53.60. The Stock Markets in the U.S. closed mixed with the Dow Jones rising 0.06% and the NASDAQ falling -0.10%. Crude Oil advanced by 1.9% against the dollar and closed at $82.95 a barrel. Gold (XAU) fell by 0.5% and closed at $1340 an ounce. Today, the Washington Post Consumer Confidence report is expected.

Euro (EUR) – The Euro weakened against the green back today after the ISM manufacturing Index came out at 56.90, better than the expected 53.60. Holding above the support level of 1.3930 keeps the momentum positive for the pair, and if the pair crosses the major resistance at 1.4004, it might reach the 1.4400 level in the next few days. Overall, EUR/USD traded with a low of 1.3864 and with a high of 1.4011. Today, German Manufacturing is expected unchanged at 56.10 and the Manufacturing PMI is also expected unchanged at 54.10.
