Upbeat PMI data support USD on Monday

Coronavirus vaccine optimism provided a boost to market sentiment on Monday and made it difficult for the greenback to find demand. However, the impressive PMI data from the US and surging Treasury bond yields allowed the USD to outperform its rivals.

The IHS Markit's preliminary Services PMI and Manufacturing PMI climbed to 57.7 and 56.7 in November, respectively, to show that the economic activity in the private sector continued to grow at a strong pace. The 10-year US Treasury bond yield gained nearly 3% after the data and the US Dollar Index (DXY) jumped to a daily high of 92.80 before going into a consolidation phase. At the moment, the DXY is up 0.2% on the day at 92.53.

On Tuesday, Richmond Fed Manufacturing Index and the Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index will be featured in the US economic docket.
