Dollar trades mildly higher in early US session, lifted by stronger than expected durable goods orders data. But it’s being overwhelmed by both Sterling and Aussie. Commodity currencies are firmer on “stable” market sentiment, but there is no follow through buy yet, including Canadian Dollar. On the other hand, Euro and Swiss Franc are the weaker ones so far, together with Yen.
