Euro Rallies Against US Dollar on North Korea Progress

The euro today rallied higher against the US dollar as investors embraced the risk-on mood in the market after it emerged that  North Korea was considering possible denuclearization.

British Pound Trades Sideways on UK Construction PMI

The British pound today traded sideways against the US dollar after the release of the Markit/CIPS UK Construction PMI in the early European session.

British Pound Slips to New Lows on Weak UK Construction Data

Euro Declines Against US Dollar on Weak Eurozone CPI

The euro was on a downtrend against the US dollar for most of the European session having been in a consolidation phase during the Asian session. The single currency’s decline was largely precipitated by the modest recovery in the US dollar demand.

British Pound Falls as Construction Activity Declines in December

The British pound fell against most of its major peers on Wednesday following a fresh release that showed a drop in activity within the construction sector in the last month of 2017.

EUR/USD Slumps to New Lows on Mixed Eurozone and ADP Data

The EUR/USD currency pair today slumped to new lows from daily highs set in the late Asian session, despite a raft of positive data from the Eurozone. The release of upbeat German factory orders for the month of October in the early European session could not lift the single currency.
