Forex Market News: U.S. Dollar Showing A Little Strength

United States currency boosted a little bit next to other big currencies in Syndey during morning trade today after its overnight drop. Not to mention, this rise occurred despite the Dow dropping almost two percent due to some uneasy issues regarding financial markets & credit.However, the dollar is still weak next to the euro, yen and sterling while the Industrial Average for the Dow Jones decreased by 237.44 points. Unfortunately, this is a result of some not-so-good news coming from Citigroup and HSBC Holdings. Citigroup Inc. is apparently looking at some major losses in regards to credit in the fourth quarter of this fiscal year and as a result there might be a handful of lay-off's that could follow.
