    NZD/USD rides dollar shorting

    The US dollar was trading on the back foot overnight as fears crept in ahead of this week's Nonfarm Payrolls. While the data was mixed, the jobs outlook was alarming.

    The US manufacturing ISM for January was worse than expected at 48.2, but the main weakness was in the employment component, which fell to 45.9 from 48.0 – the worst outcome since June 2009, as explained by James Knightley, analyst at ING.
