Euro Struggles to Rally Despite Upbeat Eurozone Inflation Data

The euro today attempted to rally against the US dollar from the Asian session but encountered massive resistance despite the release of upbeat euro area inflation data.

USD/JPY Possibly Preparing a New Leg Down Towards 107.00

US Dollar Takes a Breather After Strong Data Sparks Rally

The US dollar is taking a breather midweek following a strong session on Tuesday, driven by strong economic data that left investors feeling ebullient.

Canadian Dollar Mixed on Higher Auto Sales, Crashing Energy Prices

The Canadian dollar is mixed against a basket of currencies on Tuesday as investors sift through new motor vehicle sales data and foreign securities purchases for May. The loonie was sent lower on crashing energy prices, which is bad news for a resource-rich market. Traders will now wait for June inflation numbers that are expected to be lower than in May.

Sterling Crashes to New 27-Month Lows on Hard Brexit Fears

The Sterling pound today fell to new 27-month lows against the US dollar as markets reacted to a poor UK jobs report and the uncertain British political environment.

Aussie Firm After RBA Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes

NZ Dollar Rises on In-Line CPI, Loses Gains vs. US Dollar

The New Zealand dollar gained against most of its major peers today. While the kiwi has lost gains versus its US counterpart by now, it was still trading higher against other peers. Market analysts attributed the rally to the positive consumer inflation print, though some of them argued that the data is not as good as might seem at first glance.

Swiss Franc Opens Higher, Mixed Afterwards

The Swiss franc opened sharply higher against its major rivals today. While it fell from the opening level against some peers, the Swissie gained on others. Domestic macroeconomic data was negative to the currency.

Chinese Yuan Tries to Find Direction on Slowing GDP, Strong Data

The Chinese yuan is struggling to find direction to kick off the trading week after economic growth slowed to its lowest level in nearly three decades.
