Greenback soars vs. other currencies in thin trade
On Friday, the US currency tacked on versus other key currencies because American data along with the vote of a key US tax reform plan gave some support to the US dollar.
Thursday’s data disclosed that the American economy edged up 3.2% during the third quarter. It turned to be a downward revision from the previous outcome of 3.3%. Evidently, it happened to be the fastest tempo for more than two years.
The report emerged just a day after the House of Representatives gave the long-awaited approval to the most ambitious American tax overhaul for the last 30 years. That’s undoubtedly Donald Trump's first political achievement.
Assessing the greenback’s value versus a basket of six crucial currencies, the US dollar index tacked on 0.12% being worth 92.95.
The common currency slumped, with EUR/USD descending 0.14% being worth 1.1858. At the same time GBP/USD stood still, sticking to 1.3381.
The Japanese yen didn’t change, with USD/JPY showing 113.37.
