Dollar Holds Modest Gains After U.S. Jobs Report, Brexit in Focus
Monday, 8 April 2019 08:13 WIB | CURRENCIES | Indeks DolarDolar AS

Dollar holds modest gains after U.S. jobs report, Brexit in focus. The dollar retained modest gains on Monday after a U.S. jobs report put to bed fears of a sharper slowdown in the world's largest economy.

The closely watched data released on Friday showed nonfarm payrolls rose by a solid 196,000 in March, topping expectations and giving riskier assets a much-needed lift.

The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies was little changed at 97.383 after edging up 0.1 percent on Friday.

Against the yen, the dollar was a shade lower at 111.65 yen after popping up to a three-week high of 111.825 on Friday following the U.S. jobs report.

The Australian dollar dipped 0.15 percent to $0.7095 in the wake of declining prices of commodities such as copper.
