Canadian Dollar Soft After Crude Oil Drops 2%

The Canadian dollar was performing extremely poor today. While the loonie has managed to erase intraday losses versus the US dollar by now, the Canadian currency remained below the opening level against other most-traded rivals. The most likely reason for the drop was the decline of crude oil prices. Positive Canadian employment data did little to help the currency.

US Dollar Stands Ground vs. Majors After ADP Employment Misses

The US dollar was soft versus riskier commodity currencies but stood ground against majors.

Euro Rallies on Upbeat Eurozone PMI and Retail Sales Data

The euro today rallied higher against the US dollar in the early European session following the release of upbeat PMI data from across the eurozone by IHS Markit.

Canadian Dollar Falls After Dovish BoC Rate Decision and Statement

US Dollar Rises on Strong Jobs Report, Capped by ‘Patient’ Fed

The US dollar is gaining against its currency rivals midweek after new data shows the labor market entered 2019 on a strong note. But the dollar’s ascent was capped by a “patient” Federal Reserve, suggesting that there will not be any moves on interest rates until at least June.

Euro Range Bound on Mixed Eurozone Data, Drops on US Jobs Data

The euro today traded in a tight range amid subdued market activity as investors waited patiently for the FOMC rate decision scheduled for later today. The release of mixed data from across the eurozone had minimal impact on the EUR/USD currency pair, which continued to trade above the crucial 1.1400 level.
