Dollar index stays lower after robust ADP jobs data

May 1, 2019

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The dollar held modest losses against a basket of currencies on Wednesday as payroll processor ADP said U.S. companies added 275,000 workers in April, the biggest monthly gain since last July and exceeding analysts’ forecast of a 180,000 increase.

At 8:28 a.m. (1228 GMT), an index that tracks the greenback against the euro, yen, sterling and three other currencies was 0.05% lower at 97.426.
