    DOLLAR RECOVERS AFTER FALLING TO 2-1/2-YEAR LOW

    The U.S. dollar fell in the Asian session on Monday and hit its lowest level since April 2018, but recovered to move above the flat line later in the session, scoring gains against some of its peers.

    The dollar's safe-haven appeal fell earlier in the day after more positive news emerged on the vaccine front.

    After recent positive updates from Pfizer and Moderna, there is more encouraging news on the Covid-19 vaccine front, with the Oxford University and AstraZeneca Pharma announcing that their vaccine for the novel coronavirus could be around 90% effective under one dosing regimen.

    "Today marks an important milestone in our fight against the pandemic. This vaccine's efficacy and safety confirm that it will be highly effective against Covid-19 and will have an immediate impact on this public health emergency," AstraZeneca chief executive Pascal Soriot said in a statement.

    Meanwhile, the FDA's outside advisers are slated to meet on Dec. 10 to review Pfizer's emergency-use application for its vaccine.

    The dollar index, which fell to 92.02, recovered and hit a high of 92.80 before noon. It was last seen at 92.53, up 0.15% from previous close.

    Against the Euro, the dollar firmed up to $1.1843, gaining 0.11%. The Eurozone manufacturing purchasing managers index (PMI) fell to a three-month low level of 53.6 in November from 54.8 in October, according to the preliminary report from IHS/Markit Research. The Services PMI dropped to a six-month low level of 41.3.

    The Pound Sterling was weaker by about 0.31%, fetching $1.3324 a unit, compared to $1.3283 on Friday. The UK private sector contracted the most in six months in November, flash survey results revealed. The IHS Markit/Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply composite output index dropped to 47.4 in November from 52.1 in October.

    The Yen weakened to 104.54 a dollar, sliding from 103.85.

    Against the Aussie, the dollar gained some ground, firming up to 0.7289 from 0.7302.

    The Swiss franc was weaker at 0.9125, drifting down from 0.9113 a dollar. The Loonie was stronger, quoting at 1.3084 a dollar, up from 1.3095, thanks to higher crude oil prices.

    According to data released by the Labor Department, first-time claims for U.S. unemployment benefits unexpectedly increased in the week ended November 21st, climbing to 778,000, an increase of 30,000 from the previous week's revised level of 748,000. Economists had expected jobless claims to drop to 730,000 from the 742,000 originally reported for the previous week.

    Personal income in the U.S. fell by 0.7% in October after climbing by a downwardly revised 0.7% in September. Meanwhile, the report said personal spending rose by 0.5% in October after jumping by a revised 1.2% in September.

    Yet another report from the same department said new home sales in the U.S. unexpectedly dipped by 0.3% to an annual rate of 999,000 in October after inching up by 0.1% to a revised rate of 1.002 million in September.

    Revised data released by the University of Michigan on Wednesday showed consumer sentiment in the U.S. deteriorated by slightly more than expected in the month of November, with the index coming in at 76.9 down from a preliminary reading of 77.0.

    The dollar index, which fell to a low of 91.93 in the European session, continues to trade weak despite making a couple of attempts to pare losses. At 91.99, the dollar index is now down 0.25% from previous close.

    Against the Euro, the dollar weakened to $1.1914, despite firming up to $1.1883 in the Asian session.

    The Pound Sterling is stronger by 0.15%, fetching $1.3383 a unit, compared to $1.3363 on Tuesday.

    The Yen is little changed at 104.47 a dollar.

    The Aussie is roughly flat against the greenback, with the AUD-USD pair quoting at 0.7365.

    NEW ZEALAND FOOD PRICES FALL AS BORDER RESTRICTIONS DAMPEN EXPORTS

    New Zealand food prices declined in November as the Covid-19 restrictions reduced exports, Stats NZ said Friday.

    Food prices fell 0.9 percent month-on-month in November, bigger than the 0.7 percent drop posted in October.

    Rising air freight costs since the coronavirus border closures has made exporting products much more expensive. Moreover, shortage of international workers in the fruit picking industry has meant that growers cannot pick their fields fast enough, data revealed.

    "With less exports there is more supply available for domestic consumption, causing lower prices," consumer prices manager Katrina Dewbery said.

    "Prices are lower than we typically see for a November month with December generally being when they are cheapest. Some people may be seeing even cheaper prices during the first half of December," Dewbery said.

    Despite a sharp 43 percent decrease in strawberry prices, fruit prices advanced 5.2 percent, while vegetable prices dropped 9.9 percent.

    SINGAPORE NODX SLIDE IN NOVEMBER

    Non-oil domestic exports in Singapore dropped 4.9 percent on year in November, Enterprise Singapore said on Thursday - missing forecasts for a gain of 2.0 percent following the 3.1 percent drop in October.

    On a monthly basis, NODX slid 3.8 percent - again shy of expectations for a gain of 6.2 percent following the 5.4 percent decline in the previous month.

    The decline was mainly due to decreases among petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, non-monetary gold and electronics.

    NODX to the top 10 markets as a whole decreased in November, although exports to the United States, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong increased.
