The US dollar declined against all of its major counterparts Monday following the release of better than expected US New Home Sales data. Combined with a boost in FedEx Corp.'s earnings, these two reports together have helped to raise demand for riskier assets. New US home purchases increased 24% from May to an annual pace of 330,000.
The Dollar depreciated 0.7% to $1.008 per EUR during today's early Asian trading, from $1.2909 at the end of last week. The dollar fell to 86.86 Yen, from 87.46.
Looking ahead to today, traders are advised to follow the release of the CB Consumer Confidence at 14:00 GMT. Better than expected results on this report may intensify the greenback's recent downtrend, especially since risk appetite will rise with a positive reading.
