Euro Crashes on Risk-Off Sentiment, Recoups Losses on Better Mood

The euro today fell against the US dollar during the Asian session, driven by the risk-off market sentiment that saw most Asian equity markets selloff. The EUR/USD currency pair recovered some of its losses during the European session despite the mixed releases from across the euro area.

Euro Falls Against the Dollar for the 4th Straight Session on Weak Data

The euro today fell against the US dollar for the fourth straight session after the American open where investor sentiment shifted decisively in favour of the dollar. The EUR/USD currency pair was also weighed down by weak data from Germany and the euro area as investors waited for European leaders to decide on the 750 billion euro fund.

Japanese Yen Gains as Trading Week Starts

The Japanese yen rallied at the start at the trading week, rising against almost all other most-traded currencies with the exception of the Australian dollar. Traders were cautious due to various negative factors such as the anticipation of a global economic slowdown, the conflict between the United States and China, and protests in the USA.

Euro Rallies on Bullish Sentiment, Mixed Eurozone Inflation Data

The euro today rallied higher against the US dollar driven by positive investor sentiment even as the greenback registered losses across the board. The EUR/USD currency pair rallied higher ignoring the weak eurozone inflation data released earlier today as investors bid up riskier assets.

Euro Recovers After Mixed Economic Data, Supported by Plans for Easing Lockdown

The euro opened sharply higher today but has erased losses against the majority of its most-traded peers by now. The traders’ cautious mood was weighing on the currency, but hopes about an end to lockdown in the foreseeable future were supporting the euro. Eurozone macroeconomic data released over Monday’s trading session was mixed.

Euro Rallies From Multi-Year Lows Then Falls Amid Market Volatility

The euro today rallied higher against the US dollar early in the session as buyers stepped in pushing the pair higher from yesterday’s multi-year lows. The EUR/USD currency pair later lost momentum and headed lower driven by high demand for the US dollar.

NZ Dollar Retreats After Short-Lived Rally

The New Zealand dollar fell today against other most-traded currencies, logging the fifth consecutive session of decline against its US counterpart. While the kiwi rose a bit yesterday after the government announced a stimulus package, the rally was short-lived as risk aversion dragged the currency down.

Australian Dollar Jumps After RBA Cuts Interest Rates

Fundamentals looked extremely grim to the Australian dollar today. An interest rate cut by Australia’s central bank, unfavorable domestic economic reports, persisting risk aversion on markets — all those factors should have driven the currency down. But instead, the Aussie jumped against almost all of its major rivals, except for the Japanese yen.

Euro Crashes on Mixed Eurozone Reports and Upbeat US Prints

The euro today crashed against the US dollar following the release of mixed data from the euro area as market sentiment remained decisively bearish. The EUR/USD currency pair fell to new 1-week lows in the American session following the release of upbeat US Q3 GDP data.

NZ Dollar Reverses Earlier Losses amid Risk Aversion

The New Zealand dollar gained today after falling earlier due to mild risk aversion on the Forex market. Traders were nervous due to the threat of a hard Brexit as well as the impeachment of US President Donald Trump. There is no obvious reason why the New Zealand currency reversed its losses. Macroeconomic data released over the trading week did not paint a clear picture of the New Zealand economy as there were […]
