Japanese Yen Gains Even as Economic Growth Slows

The Japanese yen gained today even as the country’s economic growth missed expectations. Some analysts argued, though, that the data was not entirely bad, and this may explain the currency’s gains.

Australian Dollar Falls as Wage Growth Stagnates

The Australian dollar fell today against its major rivals, though it has trimmed losses against some of them by now. The main reason was underwhelming wage inflation, though the falling consumer confidence was not helping the currency either.

British Pound Declines Against US Dollar on UK Labour Report

The British pound today briefly rallied higher against the US dollar after the release of the UK employment data by the Office for National Statistics, which beat expectations. However, the rally was short-lived as the GBP/USD currency pair retraced all its gains within the same hour as markets reviewed the labor report.

US Dollar Declines Against Major Peers Despite Upbeat Inflation Data

The US dollar fell against a basket of its major peers on Tuesday, despite an economic report that showed stronger inflation than expected last month. The greenback further weakened against the euro as the German economy displayed solid growth in the third quarter of 2017, which supported the shared currency.

Yen Flat-to-Lower After Kuroda’s Speech

The Japanese yen was stable against such currencies as the US dollar and the Great Britain pound today, but fell against such European majors like the euro and the Swiss franc.

Australian Dollar Lifted by Domestic Data

The Australian dollar stabilized after yesterday’s sell-off, edging a little higher versus the US dollar and the Japanese yen, though continuing to fall against the euro for the fourth straight day. It looks like traders paid more attention to the positive domestic data than to the reports from China, Australia’s biggest trading partner.

GBP/USD Tumbles to New Lows on Soft UK CPI Data

The GBP/USD currency pair today tumbled to new lows after the release of soft UK CPI data by the Office for National Statistics early in the European session. Today’s decline extends the pound’s drop for the second consecutive session this weak after yesterday’s massive drop occasioned by news of a leadership crisis in the UK.

Euro Rallies Against US Dollar on Positive German GDP Data

The euro today rallied higher against the US dollar after the release of German GDP data by the Federal Statistical Office. Other releases from the Eurozone including the higher consumer prices in Germany served to boost the euro against the greenback.

US Dollar Posts Limited Gains as Week Starts

The US dollar was trading marginally higher against its major peers on Monday, though it logged more substantial gains versus the vulnerable Great Britain pound and was almost flat versus the euro.

Australian Dollar Creeps Down During Monday’s Quiet Trading

The Australian dollar was moving gradually down during the Monday’s uneventful trading session.
