Foreign exchange market. American session: the U.S. dollar fell against the most major currencies due to risk aversion by investors

The U.S. dollar fell against the most major currencies due to risk aversion by investors. The Greek presidential elections next week and restrictions on collateral for short-term loans by Chinese government led to investments in safe-haven assets.

France's trade deficit narrowed to €4.6 billion in October from €4.7 billion in September, missing expectations for a decline to a deficit of €4.5 billion.

The British pound rose against the U.S. dollar despite the weaker-than-expected manufacturing production data from the U.K. Manufacturing production in the U.K. fell 0.7% in October, missing expectations for a 0.2% rise, after a 0.6% gain in September.

The New Zealand dollar increased against the U.S. dollar in the absence of any major economic reports from New Zealand.

The Australian dollar rose against the U.S. dollar. In the overnight trading session, the Aussie fell against the greenback despite the disappointing economic data from Australia. The National Australia Bank's business confidence index fell to 1 in November from 4 in October.

The Japanese yen climbed against the U.S. dollar. In the overnight trading session, the yen traded higher against the greenback due to increasing demand for safe-haven yen.
