Dollar slips after weak U.S. retail sales and jobs data NEW YORK: The dollar slipped for a second straight session against a basket of major currencies on Thursday after U.S. retail sales and weekly jobless claims data showed weakness in the economy and curbed speculation of a hawkish stance from the Federal Reserve.The Commerce Department said retail sales gained 0.3 percent last month, missing expectations for a 0.6 percent rise. April's retail sales, however, were revised to show a 0.5 percent increase. The dollar's losses were modest given the reassuring revision."People have been more optimistic on the U.S. second quarter growth in the last week or so, but today we're getting a bit of a dose that it's not as spectacular as people were anticipating," said David Gilmore, partner at Foreign Exchange Analytics in Essex, Connecticut.He said that, while the April revision mitigated the dollar's losses, the latest retail sales data showed that a lack of consumer spending gave the ...

C$ firms to best level in over a week in muted trading  TORONTO: The Canadian dollar strengthened against the US dollar to its firmest in over a week Wednesday, helped in part by a low-volatility environment and investor interest in commodity currencies, though moves were limited with little economic data on tap."I think it's just a byproduct of the very low volatility environment that we seem to be in," said Adam Cole, global head of FX strategy at RBC Capital Markets in London."It's more (US) dollar than ...
Dollar slips on lower expectations of Fed rate hike, yen gains NEW YORK: The dollar slipped broadly on Wednesday for the first time in four sessions after traders dismissed expectations of an early Federal Reserve rate hike as premature, while the yen advanced on few signs of further easing from the Bank of Japan.Traders abandoned the notion that strong U.S. economic data and hawkish comments from a Federal Reserve official would prompt a less accommodative stance at the central bank's meeting next week. U.S. government bond ...
Euro drops again against dollar following stimulus NEW YORK: The dollar advanced against the euro Tuesday as investors weighed last week's aggressive European monetary stimulus policy and anticipated key US economic data later in the week."After an initial limited reaction, last week's easing by the European Central Bank appears to be weighing on the euro, with today's decline coming despite favorable Eurozone data," said Nick Bennenbroek, head of currency strategy at Wells Fargo Securities, who said the euros decline came despite solid ...
C$ holds steady vs US$ as euro action dominates TORONTO: The Canadian dollar held steady against the greenback in muted trading on Tuesday, but saw more action against other currencies with the euro under pressure after the European Central Bank (ECB) cut interest rates to record lows last week."I think crossflows are acting as a bit of a restraint on USD/CAD. We think generally speaking, USD/CAD is looking quite supported in the C$1.08-figure area," said Shaun Osborne, chief currency strategist at TD Securities.In addition ...
Dollar gains against euro on Fed rates view, slips against yen NEW YORK: The dollar extended gains against the euro on Tuesday after expectations that the Federal Reserve could raise U.S. interest rates sooner than previously expected, but fell against the yen on safe-haven demand for the Japanese currency.Traders said that strong U.S. economic data, including the government's nonfarm payrolls report last Friday showing employment returned to pre-recession levels, supported the view that the Fed could take a more hawkish stance on tightening monetary policy at ...
