Strong Data Can’t Help UK Pound

UK pound is struggling today against its major counterparts, even though recent data has been so positive. With concerns about the upcoming Bank of England meeting and fall out from the recent Brexit vote, it’s clear that the focus isn’t on the most recent data reports.

Aussie Moderates After Earlier Spike

Australian dollar is modifying its trajectory right now, pulling back a little bit after a spike earlier today. Aussie is still mostly higher against its major counterparts, but the gains are a little more subdued.

Japanese Yen Gains on Change in Stimulus Expectations

Japanese yen is gaining ground today, heading higher against most of its major counterparts. The latest expectations for stimulus have changed, and that means that the yen is benefitting from the idea that actual stimulus won’t involve as much as originally expected.

German IFO Helps Euro in Forex Trading

Euro is mostly higher today, thanks in large part to the latest German IFO reading. Although nothing to be too excited about, the most recent data offers some hope for the embattled eurozone and shows continued optimism for what’s next — even with all of the downside risks emerging for the 19-nation currency region.

US Dollar Loses Ground Ahead of Fed Meeting

US dollar is losing ground today, ahead of a Federal Reserve meeting later this week. Forex traders are consolidating their positions and profit taking as they wait to see what the Fed’s tone indicates for future rate hikes in 2016.

Canadian Dollar Pulls Back After Earlier Gains

Loonie is mostly lower right now, following earlier gains. The Canadian dollar saw some initial gains today on better than expected economic data, but many of those gains have disappeared following uncertainties moving forward, along with an end to a recent winning streak by oil.

UK Pound Plunges on Latest PMI Reading

Thanks to the Brexit vote, confidence in the UK economy is poised for big losses. The latest PMI reading — a special reading by Markit — indicates that things could be headed for trouble. Sterling is dropping dramatically on the news, losing ground to its major counterparts.

Euro Trade Mixed on the Forex Market

Euro is mixed against its major counterparts today as Forex traders look ahead to coming weeks and try to determine what might be next. Concerns about potential stimulus in September, as well as the recent focus on buying corporate bonds, have some wondering whether there is more weakness ahead for the 19-nation currency.

US Dollar Performance Choppy in Forex Trading

US dollar is experiencing choppy performance today as risk appetite battles with the fact that expectations for a Fed rate hike are on the rise again. US dollar is mostly lower against its major counterparts today, however. There hasn’t been a lot of movement as a new week starts and Forex traders evaluate the latest round of data.

Australian Dollar Climbs, Ignoring Disappointing Employment

The Australian dollar gained against the US dollar and the Japanese yen today even though employment growth trailed forecasts. The likely reason for the currency’s strength was the policy decision of Great Britain’s central bank.
