New York:  The dollar has gained against most major currencies as US economic data came in better-than-expected.

New orders for manufactured goods in June increased $8.7 billion (1.8 percent) to $478.5 billion, slightly above market estimates, Xinhua quoted the commerce department as saying on Tuesday.

This increase, up following two consecutive monthly decreases, followed a 1.1 percent May decrease.
