NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The U.S. dollar extended gains versus the euro and other major currencies on Friday after stocks dropped following the Securities and Exchange Commission's allegations that Goldman Sachs defrauded investors.
The U.S. currency had been solidly higher before the Goldman news as Greece was seen preparing to tap a standby-emergency-aid package from the European Union and International Monetary Fund.

There is a lot of uncertainty in the financial markets due to various reasons such as the US-China relations, the problems with failing European economies and the upcoming British General Elections. This has lead to a lot of volatility in the markets.


Due to these factors, it is very important to stick to your trading plan, trade less often and most importantly, apply good money management to your trading!!
