Dollar index (USDX)

US Dollar index chart on 3 March 2023

On May 3rd, the dollar experienced a decline following a report revealing a decrease in new jobs in the United States. Market participants eagerly awaited the Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates, which was set to be announced later in the day.

According to data released the day before, new jobs in the US dropped for the third consecutive month in March, with the rate of layoffs being the highest it has been in over two years. This slowdown in the labor market could assist the Federal Reserve in its efforts to curb inflation.

As a result, the dollar index, which measures the US currency against six other currencies, dropped by 0.029% to 101.820, after experiencing a decrease of 0.245% the day prior.
