The Greenback fell modestly against the Euro on the ADP report revealing some weakening in the employment change in November. The EUR/USD lost 5 base points to return ito 1.1810 area and declined further to be seen trading below the 1.1800 area, as the next release was not strong enough to bring the pair back to stronger levels.

The US private sector created 190K jobs in November, down strongly from the prior month, but in line with projections, the ADP report indicated, ahead of more comprehensive the US Labour Departments figures to be issued on Friday. Meanwhile, another data showed the revision of the US unit labour costs, which was at an annualised 0.2% rate in the Q3, compared to the initially reported 0.5% rise.
