Euro Mixed After Macroeconomic Data Disappoints

The euro was mixed today following the release of lackluster macroeconomic data in the eurozone. The currency gained on the US dollar, which remained extremely soft, but was flat versus the Great Britain pound and fell against safe currencies like the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc.

British Pound Rallies on Rumors That Brexit Would Be Delayed

The euro today dropped against the US dollar from the start of today’s session as the greenback rebounded on investors’ hopes about the outcome of the US-China trade talks.

Chinese Yuan Posts Modest Gains As Beijing Begins Stimulus

The Chinese yuan is posting modest gains against some of its currency rivals after the federal government started to launch several aspects of its stimulus program this week.

Australian Dollar Trades Lower After China’s Data Misses Expectations

Japanese Yen Gains on Growing Optimism, Export Rebound

Chinese Yuan Rises Despite Disappointing Economic Data

The Chinese yuan is gaining against its American counterpart midweek, despite a myriad of disappointing economic numbers that show the national economy is not on strong footing. It is evident by now that Beijing will be unable to weather the storm clouds forming from the US-China trade war.

The Australian dollar attempted to rally during the Wednesday’s trading session but fell later. Some market analysts attributed the decline to the worse-than-expected retail sales in China.

Economic reports released in Australia itself over the current session were good.
