FXstreet.com (London) - The dollar has climbed against the euro on thin trading following robust numbers released today. US durable goods orders beat consensus expectations of a 2 percent gain in November, printing at 3.5 percent. The figures peg back the 0.7 percent fall in October and boosts expectations of US recovery.

Core capital goods, a category that tracks business investment, rose 4.5 percent, the biggest gain since January.

EUR/USD has fallen 0.28 percent to USD1.3658.

With German markets closed for today’s bank holiday, the lack of bund trading helped keep EUR/USD range bound, with French consumer spending numbers ostensibly showing some positive news for the country’s struggling economy. However, the 1.4 percent rise in November was largely driven by energy expenditure.
