Dollar softens after jobs disappointment

|By:, SA News Editor

Excepting the loonie, the dollar is soundly lower against all the major currencies following December's payroll report (Canada's jobs report was a major disappointment; hence the loonie's decline).

The U.S. Dollar Index Bull (UUP -0.6%); the U.S. Dollar Index Bear (UDN +0.3%)

The biggest gainer is the Australian dollar (FXA +0.9%), with rebounding commodity prices perhaps adding an extra boost.

The euro (FXE +0.6%), the yen (FXY +0.8%), the pound (FXB +0.1%)
