This morning online Forex traders at AVAFX saw the US dollar strengthened by low unemployment figures, as the Greenback made gains against most of its major counterparts. On the day the US unemployment numbers reached a five-year low, the dollar saw bullish movement before a poor US manufacturing indicator restricted further growth for the dollar.

The GBP/USD currency pair dropped 75 pips during the London trading session, reaching a low of 1.5954 before recovering to 1.5980. The dollar also made headway against the Swiss franc, with the USD/CHF currency pair climbing by over 50 pips during the London trading session. However, later today the US Preliminary UoM Consumer Sentiment figures are released, which, if lower than expected, could well undo all of the dollar’s progress in an afternoon. Keep one eye on the economic news bulletins for those figures, as you will need to make those trades quickly if you’re to try and beat the field to the best prices.

Today, weak German figures have devalued the euro, with the single European currency falling as low as $1.2040 against the US dollar during Tuesday’s New York Trading session.
