Evergreen buck dives as Loonie jumps
On Friday, the evergreen buck declined versus its major counterparts because dismal jobs report did little to affect expectations the key US bank might rein in rate lifts.
Measuring the purchasing power of the greenback against its key rivals the USD index declined by 0.15% trading at 96.62.
As a matter of fact, nonfarm payrolls surged by 155,000 for the November, diving from 237,000 in the previous month. It confounded experts’ estimate of 200,000.

The currency pair USD/JPY rallied by 0.04% because safe-haven demand backed a bid in Japan’s currency, keeping a lid on profits in the currency pair.
The currency pair USD/CAD went down by 0.61% trading at C$1.3302 as firm jobs data from Canada drew a bid in the Canadian dollar, although profits could be restricted by dwindling hopes for a Bank of Canada rate lift.
