The U.S. dollar traded mixed against the most major currencies in the absence of any major economic reports from the U.S.

Market participants continued to eye Friday's U.S. labour market data. According to the U.S. Labor Department's data, the U.S. economy added 242,000 jobs in February, exceeding expectations for a rise of 190,000 jobs, after a gain of 172,000 jobs in January. January's figure was revised up from a rise of 151,000 jobs. The increase was driven by rises in health care and social assistance, retail trade, food services and drinking places, and private educational services. The U.S. unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.9% in February, the lowest level since February 2008, in line with expectations. Average hourly earnings dropped 0.1% in February, missing forecasts of a 0.2% gain, after a 0.5% rise in January.

The euro traded mixed against the U.S. dollar after the release of the negative economic data from the Eurozone. Market research group Sentix released its investor confidence index for the Eurozone on Monday. The index fell to 5.5 in March from 6.0 in February. It was the lowest level since April 2015.

A reading above 0.0 indicates optimism, below indicates pessimism.

"The Eurozone suffers from the loss of economic momentum of the global economy," managing director at Sentix, Patrick Hussy, said.

"A look abroad gives more reasons to cheer this time: values for Asia ex. Japan could recover the second month in a row. Moreover, the US economy exhibits resilience in March," he added.

Destatis released its factory orders data for Germany on Monday. German seasonal adjusted factory orders declined 0.1% in January, beating expectations for a 0.3% decrease, after a 0.2% fall in December. December's figure was revised up from a 0.7% drop.

The drop was driven by a decrease in domestic orders. Foreign orders increased by 1.0% in January, while domestic orders dropped by 1.6%.

The British pound traded lower against the U.S. dollar in the absence of any major economic reports from the U.K.

EUR/USD: the currency pair traded mixed

GBP/USD: the currency pair declined to $1.4132

USD/JPY: the currency pair fell to Y113.39
