The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies. There will be released no major economic reports today.
The greenback remained supported by Friday's U.S. labour market data. The U.S. economy added 280,000 jobs in May, exceeding expectations for a rise of 2225,000 jobs, after a gain of 221,000 jobs in April. It was the largest increase since December.
The U.S. unemployment rate rose to 5.5% in May from 5.4% in April. Analysts had expected the unemployment rate to remain unchanged at 5.4%.
The euro traded mixed against the U.S. dollar after the mixed economic data from the Eurozone. Market research group Sentix released its investor confidence index for the Eurozone on Monday. The index fell to 17.1 in June from 19.6 in May, missing expectations for a decline to 18.7. It was the lowest level since February.
The Eurozone's recovery was offset by the uncertainty over the Greek debt crisis and a stronger euro.
German investor confidence index plunged to 26.8 in June from 28.2 in May due to a stronger euro, a slower global economic growth and higher long-term yields.

Germany's current account surplus fell to €19.6 billion in April from €27.3 billion in March. March's figure was revised down from a surplus of €27.9 billion.
