USD struggles to find demand
In the absence of significant macroeconomic data releases, the greenback's valuation continues to impact the pair's movements.
The US Dollar Index (DXY), which gained 0.3% on Thursday, stayed relatively quiet below 97.00 during the first half of the day but lost its traction in the early American session. At the moment, the DXY is losing 0.28% on the day at 96.50.
The modest rebound witnessed in the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average seems to be weighing on the greenback. On the other hand, the Nasdaq Composite is down 0.2%, suggesting that market sentiment remains mixed ahead of the weekend. The latest data from the US showed that the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the state of Florida increased by 11,433 to a total of 244,151.
Meanwhile, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that the annual core Producer Price Index (PPI) fell to 0.1% in June to miss the market expectation of 0.4% but was largely ignored by the market participants.
