Sterling Remains Strongest After CBI Manufacturing Report

Great Britain Pound Soft After BoE Governor Hints at Interest Rate Cut

The Great Britain pound dropped today, though by now it has managed to trim losses against some of its rivals.

Sterling Skyrockets After Conservatives Win in UK Election

The Great Britain pound soared today after the landslide victory of the Conservative party in the UK election. With Conservatives securing a majority in the House of Commons, chances for disorderly Brexit fell dramatically, though hard Brexit remains a possibility. Currently, the sterling has trimmed its gains but is still trading far above the opening level.

Great Britain Pound Sinks on Extremely Poor PMIs

The Great Britain pound was the worst-performing major currency today, falling against all other most-traded rivals. The currency was heading to the biggest weekly loss in almost three weeks. The reason for the poor performance were extremely poor PMI figures, which made economists speculate that Britain’s economy will face a contraction in the fourth quarter of this year.

Euro Holds Ground After Inflation Slows

The euro rose against other most-traded currencies today even after a report confirmed that eurozone inflation slowed last month. It looks like the market sentiment is recovering as riskier currencies are gaining upward momentum, while safer ones seem to be under pressure.

Sterling Volatile amid Brexit Uncertainty, Disappointing Data

The Great Britain pound was extremely volatile today, sinking intraday but bouncing later. Currently, the sterling is trading above the opening level.

Euro Softer After Slew of Macroeconomic Reports

The euro fell against the US dollar as well as some other major currencies after the release of a slew of macroeconomic reports in Europe today. Market experts attributed the euro’s decline to the weaker-than-expected inflation data. Unemployment reports, on the other hand, were surprisingly good.

Sterling Strong Despite Poor Macroeconomic Data

The Great Britain pound was rather strong today. That is surprising considering that domestic macroeconomic reports were unhelpful, demonstrating the weakness of the British economy. The Brexit also continued to weigh on the currency, though today there was no major news about it.
