The Swiss franc was one of the strongest currencies today, rising against almost all other most-traded rivals.

The Swiss franc was rather soft today, falling against some major rivals and trading flat versus others. It looked like traders felt no need to buy safer currencies despite increasing tensions between the United States and China over Hong Kong protests and their potential negative impact on chances of reaching a trade deal. Domestic macroeconomic data did not help the Swissie either as the report released today […]

Sterling Strong Despite Poor Macroeconomic Data

Surprising Growth of Britain’s Retail Sales Bolster Sterling

The Great Britain pound gained against other most-traded currencies today after Britain’s retail sales rose unexpectedly last month. The threat of a no-deal Brexit continues to hang over the currency, but the sterling largely ignored it today, paying more attention to the positive data.

Sterling Suffers from Rising Chances of No-Deal Brexit

The Great Britain pound slumped against all other most-traded currencies today amid concerns that chances for a no-deal Brexit increase. And a hard Brexit can deal a serious blow to Britain’s economy. The currency was trading at the lowest level in about two years.
