US: Consumer confidence deteriorates in June, USD edges lower
Tuesday, 25 June 2019 21:20 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi AS

The monthly Consumer Confidence Survey published by the Conference Board today revealed that the consumer confidence weakened in June with the headline Confidence Index dropping to 121.5 in June from 131.3 in May.

Other data from the U.S. revealed that new home sales in May contracted by 7.8% to fall short of the market expectation for an increase of 1.9%. 

With the initial reaction, the US Dollar Index edged lower and was last seen down 0.04% on the day at 95.96. Nevertheless, technically oversold conditions don't seem to be allowing the index to push lower.
