    US Dollar firmer post-Payrolls

    The improved health around the US labour market has echoed in further expectations of a rate hike later this month, keeping the buoyant tone around the dollar today and prompting buyers to lift the index to the vicinity of the 99.00 handle.

    On the data front, Fed’s Labor Market Conditions Index has missed estimates at 0.5 during November, down from the previous 2.2 gain.
