US Dollar Clinches Daily Tops Near 93.40

The greenback, tracked by the US Dollar Index, is prolonging its weekly upside and testing session tops near 93.40.

US Dollar boosted by data

It was all the way up for USD after hitting multi-month lows near 91.90 on Tuesday, managing to regain both the 92.00 and 93.00 marks on better sentiment and positive results from the US docket.

In fact, today’s ISM Non-manufacturing, Makit’s Services PMI and Trade Balance have all surpassed expectations, while on the not-so-bright note, the ADP Employment Change showed the US private sector has created less jobs than expected during April, although the greenback quickly shrugged off the results.
