Yen Weakest Despite Better-than-Expected Domestic Reports

The Japanese yen was the weakest major currency on the Forex market today, falling against all other most-traded rivals.

Aussie Flat, Ignores Negative Domestic Macroeconomic Data

Japanese Yen Weakens on Slide in Machine Tool Orders, Bump in PPI

The Japanese yen is weakening against most of its currency rivals on Thursday after a mix of economic data that highlighted both gains and weaknesses in the world’s third-largest economy. Is the federal government’s stimulus enough to prevent Tokyo from slipping into the long-awaited recession?

Aussie Trades Lower on Poor Data, Risk Aversion

The Australian dollar was trading generally lower today due to an unexpected drop of private capital expenditure last week. Released at the start of Thursday’s trading session, a report on construction work done showed a decline as well, but it was not as big as experts had feared. The Forex market was in a risk-off mode after US President Donald Trump officially supported Hong Kong protesters, and that also had a negative impact […]

Japanese Yen Reverses Losses in Second Half of Monday’s Session

The Japanese yen performed opposite to riskier currencies today, falling intraday but rebounding later. Whether it is due to US tariffs on Chinese goods kicking in or light volumes on markets due to holiday in the United States resulting in sharp and unpredictable swings, it looks like most currencies reversed their movement in the second half of the Monday’s session.

Australian Dollar Weakens on Poor Data, Rebounds Later

The Australian dollar was largely following the footsteps of its New Zealand counterpart today, falling initially during the Thursday’s session due to poor domestic data but rebounding later on the improving market sentiment before weakening yet again afterward. The Aussie did a better job of retaining its gains than the kiwi, though.

Japanese Yen Weakens Despite Better Q1 GDP Amid Higher Business Spending

The Japanese yen is weakening against several major currencies on Tuesday, despite upbeat economic data and positive news that should strengthen the safe-haven currency.

Aussie Rallies Despite Poor Domestic Data, Unable to Keep Gains

The Australian dollar rallied today despite extremely poor domestic macroeconomic data. The possible reason for that was the fact that the market sentiment stabilized as traders priced in the trade war between the United States and China. Yet the currency was unable to hold onto gains and is currently trading below the opening level.

Poor Chinese Economic Data Overshadows Australian Reports, Dragging Aussie Down

The Australian dollar fell on Thursday and was one of the weakest currencies on the Forex market during the trading session. While domestic macroeconomic data was decent for the most part, poor reports from China and risk aversion on markets dragged the currency down.
