Lowest level in 7 months.
he U.S. Dollar tumbled on Monday after the publication of far better than forecast ISM Manufacturing PMI from the U.S. economy. The reading rose to an 11 month high of 48.9, notably higher than the forecasted figure of 46.4. Construction data in the U.S. also showed some big improvements. This led to a drop in the demand of the USD, as risk appetite grew throughout the day. The greenback tumbled against virtually all of its major currency pairs, as traders feel that the recession is nearly over, and economic growth will soon return to the U.S. economy. As a result, the USD fell to its lowest level in 7 months.
