Swiss Franc Retreats From Safe-Haven Bolster As Foreign Investment Declines

The Swiss franc is sliding against some of its major currency rivals midweek. For the last week, the franc has been advancing as investors seek out safe-haven assets during the escalation in the US-China trade spat. The franc has ostensibly come back down to earth on recent economic data.

Euro Fails to Rally amid US-China Trade Spat, Macroeconomic Data Doesn’t Help

Pound Soft After Mixed Employment Data

The Great Britain pound was generally soft today, dragged down mostly by the market sentiment. Domestic employment data was mixed, providing both positive and negative surprises, and therefore giving no help for the currency in finding direction.
