Yesterday, the majority of currencies, as well as commodities, incurred losses amid the strengthening of the . The greenback went up already at the very beginning of the European session. The American currency moved slowly but steadily. Therefore, it was too early to talk about a rally. But with the opening of the North American session, the greenback started to gain ground and its global growth became obvious. Under such circumstances, macroeconomic data did not matter.
Final business activity results in the United States came out lower from preliminary estimates. The fell 64.6 from a preliminary estimate of 64.8 and compared with 70.4 recorded in the previous month. The dropped to 63.7 from 68.7. The preliminary estimate was 63.9.

Given what has happened, there is only one question: “Why did the greenback strengthen?” Overall, there is nothing surprising in that. After the outcome of the last FOMC was announced, it became quite obvious that the US dollar was becoming bullish. Nobody expected that. Indeed, investors are determined to buy USD, but trends develop differently and present a smoother curve.

Moreover, in the US are projected to decrease to 9,100,000 from 9,286,000. On top of that, we should not forget that the in the United States has risen. Thus, a decline in the number of job openings hints at a possibility of a fall in unemployment.
