  • The dollar index, which measures the Greenback against a basket of six major currencies, was steady at 97.05.

  • Check out quick trade ideas for GBP/USD and NZD/USD today.

 

USD – CB Consumer Confidence

Why Consumer Confidence Matters?
Fellas, the financial confidence is a leading indicator of consumer spending, which accounts for a majority of overall economic activity. For instance, you will spend more only if you are confident about your job or business. It’s pretty logical to say better than expected data is considered good for the economy.
