Yen Strong as Trade Wars Continue to Hurt Market Sentiment

Euro Rallies From Multi-Year Lows as US Data Disappoints

The euro today rallied from multi-year lows in the American session after key US data disappointed and US Treasury yields dropped to multi-year lows.

NZ Dollar Fails to Hold Ground in Face of Risk Aversion

Perhaps, the currency continued to fall after disappointing macroeconomic releases in China on Tuesday. Update: currently, the Aussie has lost its gains.

Euro Drops on Upbeat US ADP Jobs Data, Rallies on Weak PMI Print

The euro today rallied against the US dollar for the fourth consecutive session despite the lack of releases from the European docket due to the labour day holiday.
