    Dollar Weakens as Economic Data Improves

    The dollar edged lower in early European trade Friday, with volumes hit by the U.S. holiday and traders weighing the conflicting influences of positive economic data and the increasing number of coronavirus cases. Economic data released earlier Friday pointed to a brisk pickup in the Chinese service sector, with the Caixin Services Purchasing Managers Index coming in at 58.4 in June, the highest reading in two months. β€œFed money printing has now secured what seems to be a stable negative correlation between risk assets and the dollar,” said analysts at ING, in a research note.
