US Dollar weaker on trade balance data

28 July, 2011


US Dollar rates have continued to improve slightly, after Friday’s weaker-than-expected US trade balance figures.

September’s defecit was $36.5bn, over $4bn worse than market expectations.

The US consumer sentiment survey published on Friday was also negative, giving the US Dollar some further weakness – good news for anyone sending money to the USA.
