The USD exchange rate often fluctuates after economic data is released throughout each month. Investors watch out for the economic data to decide whether to invest in the USD or to sell off. They also listen intently to political leaders and influencers. In more recent times, the US dollar rate has been influenced by political leaders voicing their opinions via social media, making the foreign exchange market even more unpredictable.
