Canadian Dollar Weakens Despite Strong November Retail Sales

The Canadian dollar is weakening against most major currency competitors to close out the trading week.

The Sterling pound today succumbed to pressure and fell from its daily highs despite the release of upbeat UK flash PMIs by Markit Economics in the early London session.

Mexican Peso Weakens As IMF Slashes Growth Estimates

Australian Dollar Emerges Strongest After Employment Report

The Australian dollar rallied against all other of its most-traded rivals, even the Japanese yen, which itself was rather strong.

Even risk aversion prevailing on the market was unable to stop the Australian currency from rallying.

Japanese Yen Rallies on Returning Fears of Coronavirus

The Japanese yen gained against most other major currencies today, with the exception of the Australian dollar, which got a boost from domestic employment data.

AUD/NZD May Try a Turn Towards 1.0530

Sterling Remains Strongest After CBI Manufacturing Report

Chinese Yuan Flat As Virus Outbreak Triggers Growth Concerns

The Chinese yuan is trading relatively flat against a myriad of currency rivals midweek as the nation’s virus outbreak has triggered economic growth concerns.
