The dollar index is moving higher ahead of Friday's nonfarm payroll report, and the question for traders is whether the move will continue.
Todd Gordon, for one, is planning to hold on.
"I think we're in a risk off environment here," said Gordon, co-head of research and trading at Aspen Trading. He is projecting that worries about the "fiscal cliff" will boost demand for the safe-haven dollar, as will a downbeat economic forecast from the European Central Bank. "I'd like to take the long side of the dollar heading into the NFP," as he tags the nonfarm payroll report.
